Four people were killed while eight others were injured when a truck was involved in a head-on collision with an Iveco omnibus (Kombi) between Chivhu and Mvuma, along the Harare-Masvingo Road early this morning.
The accident occurred between 2 am and 4 am.
The omnibus was on its way from Beitbridge Border Post heading towards Harare, while the haulage truck was heading towards the opposite direction when tragedy struck.
The haulage truck reportedly rammed into a stationary tipper truck which had developed a mechanical fault that made it swerve into the lane of oncoming traffic, resulting in the head-on collision.
Four people, including the haulage truck driver, died on the spot, while eight others were seriously injured.
National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed the accident and said more details will be released soon.
