Bus Veers Off The Road And Runs Over 3 People On New Year's Eve

Bus Veers Off The Road And Runs Over 3 People On New Year's Eve

Three pedestrians died on the spot when a bus veered off the road and ran over them in Masvingo on New Year’s Eve.

While a statement by the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) seen by Pindula News did not name the bus involved in the accident, this publication has learnt that the bus trades under the Inter Africa brand. Reads the statement:

The ZRP Confirms a fatal RTA which occurred at the 15 km peg along Zaka-Nyika Road on 31/12/22 at around 1000 hours when a bus went off the road and ran over three pedestrians who were standing on the roadside. The three victims died on the spot.

In another road traffic accident, a motorist driving a Volvo F series truck lost control of the truck and veered off the road to the left where he hit a stationary Honda Fit vehicle which had five occupants.

Three passengers in the Honda Fit vehicle died on the spot, while two others were injured.

The accident occurred at the 39 km peg along Harare-Bulawayo Road on 31 December 2022 at 1730 hours.

Statistics from police and the Traffic Council of Zimbabwe indicate that human error, bad weather, mechanic fault and poor roads are the leading causes of accidents.

Members of the public are encouraged to observe road rules to save lives.

Our roads and bad drives claim innocent lives. These accidents are not due to natural causes. Never stand next to potholes or where the road is terribly bad. Most Honda Fit drivers are a headache. They park and stop in any part of the road. Was the Honda Fit completely off the main road? Not all cases are Acts of God.

The only remedy to bad driving is good faithful policing, we need unmarked police cars and force bad drivers off the road on the spot. You will see people driving well again.
