FORMER Huddersfield Town loan star Peter Ndlovu is fighting for his life after a crash which killed his brother.
The former striker is in hospital in his native Zimbabwe after the horror crash.
The player was a hero to Town fans during his short stint at the club in 2000/2001.
Ndlovu, who also played for Coventry City, Birmingham and Sheffield United during a 13-year career in England, is in a coma after the car crash.
The BMW X5 was left in a mangled heap after the crash and was reportedly being driven by 42-year-old Adam Ndlovu.
Adam, also a former footballer who played for Zimbabwe, died in the incident near Victoria Falls.
A female passenger is also reported to have died in the accident.
Peter, 39, is currently assistant coach of the Zimbabwean national side.
Pictures from the scene of the crash show the smashed-up front of the BMW X5 by the side of the road.
According to reports in Zimbabwe, Adam was driving the car as they returned from watching a local match.
Peter Ndlovu starred for Coventry in the Premier League before joining Birmingham.
He was a favourite among Coventry fans during the 90s. He scored 39 goals in 176 matches before leaving for Birmingham.
He had a short loan spell at Huddersfield before joining Sheffield United.
The Blades confirmed the news of the crash in a statement on their official Twitter feed.

He returned to African club football in 2004.
He was capped 100 times by Zimbabwe, scoring 38 goals.
