A speeding vehicle with poor lights last week Thursday fatally stroke a Nissan caravan killing some of the people who were behind it trying to help a trapped motorist who had been involved in an accident.
The accident was confirmed by Mashonaland Central police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Fidelis Dhewu who said two died on the spot, one on the way to the hospital while others were admitted at Mvurwi Hospital.
Police say Edward Makumbe (52) was driving a Mazda Bongo towards Mvurwi when he hit a cow and was trapped inside the vehicle.
Notice Makaza (34), who was driving a Nissan Caravan parked his vehicle to assist the trapped motorist. Assistant Inspector Dhewu added:
Jumbe Trymore (43), who was driving a truck with poor lights and was also speeding, failed to keep a proper lookout and hit the Nissan Caravan and as a result the three people who were behind the Nissan Caravan were knocked down.
Shamu and Kasaira died on the spot while Mvurumu, who had come from nearby houses to render assistance, died on the way to Mvurwi Hospital. Makaza is in a stable condition.
He added that Jumbe has since been charged with culpable homicide while the owner of the cow is charged under the Road and Traffic Regulations.
The accident happened around 6 pm along Guruve-Mvurwi Road.
Those involved in the accident were identified as Lilian Shamu, Tarisai Kasaira, Delight Mvurumu, Norman Makaza and Darlington Guvamombe.
