Oscar Pistorius
' older brother faces up to 15 YEARS in the slammer for allegedly killing a female biker during a fatal car crash -- this according to new reports.

Carl Pistorius has been charged with culpable homicide -- according to eNCA news, a South African TV channel -- stemming from a car crash in 2010, in which prosecutors say his reckless driving led to the death a motorcyclist.

Carl's lawyer recently told the station that Carl "deeply regrets the accident," but was adamant his client was not drunk at the the time of the collision, adding, "There is no doubt that [he] is innocent and the charge will be challenged in court."

According to reports, Carl's trial was set to begin last Thursday -- the same day his brother Oscar (who is facing a charge of premeditated murder in the death of Reeva Steemkamp) was freed on bail -- but it was postponed until next month.

Their sister should have eyes in the back of her head. Apparently females have a low survivor rate in her brother's company. Kinda scary!

Oh a "female" biker.
Good thing that was pointed out, 'cause if it was a male biker it wouldn't be as important to the public.
The "female" detail will give the fickle gossipy types a chance to rant about female violence now.
Kinda like how South Park makes the adults ramble ramble ramble :D
