Witnesses believe the accident was caused by poor visibility as there was a veld fire on both sides of the road. A witness said:
When I passed there earlier, I even mentioned this fire is dangerous and will cause accidents because of poor visibility then the worst happened and these trucks collided.
Another witness said:
It’s sad I knew this guy he was a businessman and we were in Harare together earlier in the afternoon and we headed our separate ways, then I got here to find this tragedy. It’s really sad.
Mashonaland Central Acting Police Spokesperson Assistant Inspector Naison Dhliwayo said police are still conducting investigations.
