Oscar Pistorius' brother Carl has been ''badly hurt'' in a car accident after a head-on collision on a highway in South Africa. 

Arnold Pistorius, the brothers' uncle, says Carl Pistorius was involved in a ''serious car accident'' on Friday night while he was returning home from a business trip in the northern city of Polokwane.

Carl Pistorius was reported to be have sustained multiple fractures. Arnold Pistorius said Saturday that Carl ''was badly hurt but we are thankful that he is out of danger''. 

He said Carl Pistorius had been transferred to a hospital in Pretoria, the South African capital. Carl Pistorius went to trial and was acquitted last year of a negligent killing charge after being involved in a road accident in 2008 in which a female motorcyclist died.
