15 killed in Bulawayo after commuter omnibus and haulage truck collide

15 people are reported to have died when a haulage truck and a commuter omnibus (kombi) collided along the Bulawayo-Beitbridge road near the National University of Science and Technology (NUST). The accident happened around 1 am when the haulage truck reportedly encroached into the lane for oncoming traffic. As a result, the kombi collided with the truck’s second trailer. 14 people died on the spot while one died at United Bulawayo Hospitals (UBH).

Lameck Marapira, the driver of the haulage truck, blamed the potholes on the road saying that he had lost control of the truck after hitting a pothole.

Will update with more details as they come in.
