FATAL ACCIDENT ALONG MASVINGO ROAD, FOUR FEARED DEAD
In yet another tragic accident, 4 people died, 3 on the spot, with one seriously injured when a vehicle they were travelling in veered off the road and rolled along the Masvingo-Beitbridge Road yesterday.
Police spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba said the accident occurred at around 6:30AM at the 38km peg near Steven’s Business Centre.
She said the names of the deceased would be withheld until their next of kin have been notified.
“In Masvingo four people were killed near Steven’s Business Centre when the driver of a Toyota Funcargo lost control of his vehicle which veered off the road before landing on its left side,” said Snr Asst Comm Charamba.
“The Zimbabwe Republic Police is concerned with recent road traffic accidents mainly attributed to causes such as following too close behind and failure by motorists to use reflective triangles when their motor vehicles break down. Pedestrians are also being knocked down when crossing roads,” Snr Asst Comm Charamba said.
She urged motorists and pedestrians to be alert.
