Popular Gweru Kombi Driver Crushed To Death By Haulage Truck

A popular commuter omnibus driver was crushed to death by a haulage truck at the intersection of Main Street and Lobengula Avenue in Gweru.

Tawanda “Buju” Chinobva, also a mechanic, was trying to cross the busy road by going underneath the slow-moving truck at around 5.30PM but ended up being crushed. The driver of the Harare-based truck which was enroute to Bulawayo refused to identify himself saying he needed clearance from his employer. He said he was shocked to hear whistles and shouts from people asking him to stop the truck. He said he had stopped his truck at the controlled intersection and was just starting to move as traffic in front of him had cleared when he had to stop. The truck driver said:

I stopped my truck before the intersection of Main Street and Lobengula Avenue because of traffic in front of me. When I put the truck into first gear and it started moving, people waved frantically and shouted for me to stop. I didn’t see or hear anything other than the shouts before I stopped only to be shocked to see that the truck had dragged this person underneath for about two metres. I didn’t see him go under the truck.

Some of the witnesses who spoke to The Chronicle said Buju appeared to be drunk.
