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.

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.
