A seven-year-old Chitungwiza girl yesterday escaped harm after a motorist rammed into a house she was sleeping in, giving residents a scare.
The minor was reported to have been awakened from her sleep after a motorist, only identified as Magumbo, veered off the road and rammed into the house along Chitungwiza Road opposite St Marys suburb.
Magumbo, who was driving his Mazda Verisa (registration AEQ 9371), disappeared from the scene presumably fearing the crowd, that included vendors, who rushed to the house in shock.
The house, which is almost 20 metres away from the road, cracked and residents safeguarded the property since the minor’s parents were reported to have left in the wee hours.
“The driver was coming from Machipisa along Chitungwiza Road when he suddenly veered off the road trying to avoid a head on collision with another vehicle. He then rammed into the house,” said the neighbor refusing to identify themself.
“The child who was asleep cried out and people turned all their attention to her, allowing the driver to disappear. “The child’s parents left the house early in the morning and their mobile phones are unreachable.
The child is not aware of their whereabouts. “We will make sure the goods exposed by the cracking are protected and we have taken the child to a safe place until her parents return,” said the neighbour.
Both the motorist and the parents were unreachable by the time of going to print.
