3 people died when the vehicle they were travelling in tried to avoid some goats on the road and cut on to the oncoming traffic lane and collided with a haulage truck along the Masvingo Beitbridge Highway. Sunday News reports.
ZRP National Spokesperson Assistant Paul Nyathi confirmed the accident:
I can confirm an accident which happened at the 86km peg along the Beitbridge-Masvingo highway which claimed three lives when a KIA car which was trying to avoid hitting goats that were on the road encroached onto the oncoming vehicle lane and collided head-on with a haulage truck.
The KIA had South African registration numbers and it got trapped under the haulage truck, killing all three occupants.We have gathered that the two passengers in the haulage truck were Zambians and we are still trying to find out if the deceased passengers from the Kia are from Zimbabwe or South Africa.
the accident came a few days after 12 people died in Mudzi after the vehicle they were travelling in veered off the road and overturned killing 10 people on the spot.
