A driver delivering Pepsi soft drinks to Shurugwi was killed in a road traffic accident on Friday morning, Masvingo Mirror reports.
The now-deceased driver, Simbarashe Chiya (39) died when he lost control of his truck which overturned at Boterekwa Escarpment in Shurugwi and landed on its roof around 6:30 AM today.
Thousands of bottle drinks were strewn all over the place and villagers collected as much as they could after the owner of the truck Owen Mudzimba allegedly gave them the green light to take them.
The accident happened at a black spot infamously referred to as “pabutcher”.
Mudzimba is from Malbereign Harare while the driver is from Kuwadzana.
