A drunk driving soldier who had absconded duty to go for an adult drink, while returning to the Imbizo Barracks in Bulawayo lost control of his vehicle and ploughed into a group of about100 of his colleagues who were on a morning jog injuring 30 of them in the process, New Zimbabwe reports.
Sources that spoke to the publication about the situation at Mpilo Hospital said;
There are no fatalities yet, only one is being treated for head injuries, the rest are being treated for a few broken bones and ribs. They are all being evaluated by orthopaedic surgeons at Mpilo general hospital.
No detail was shared as to where the driver is, we only got information that he is a soldier and was rushing back to Mbizo after fleeing his night duties,
The soldier’s Nissan Sylphy lights were off and those jogging did not see him until he had driven into them.
