Five Killed, Three Injured In Road Accident

Five people were killed while three others sustained serious injuries when two vehicles they were travelling on were involved in a head-on collision along the Harare-Masvingo road on Saturday afternoon.

ZRP spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed the accident to the Chronicle which happened on the 159km peg at around 1 PM. He said:

A driver who was driving a Mitsubishi Canter registration number AFV 0664 due south towards Masvingo with two passengers on board had a front right tyre burst, lost control of the vehicle and encroached onto the opposite lane where he had a head-on collision with another motorist who was driving an unregistered Mazda Familiar motor vehicle due north towards Harare with four passengers on board.

Asst Comm Nyathi said all people who were in the Mazda Familiar died on the spot and another person who was aboard the Mitsubishi Canter also died.

He said the bodies of the deceased were taken to Chivhu General Hospital mortuary for post-mortem while the injured were also ferried to the hospital for medical attention.
