Chikomba-Two people died in a fatal road accident that occurred along the Harare-Masvingo highway at the 79 km peg two weeks ago.
Mashonaland East Police spokesperson Simon Chazovachiyi confirmed the accidents to The Mirror
The accident involved a Toyota Dyna truck that was going to Harare with four passengers on board carrying three tonnes of scrap metal. On approaching the 79km peg the driver lost control of the vehicle which veered off the road to the left and overturned twice before landing on the left side.
Two passengers died on the spot.
The driver and two passengers were injured and were admitted to Beatrice Hospital.
“Drivers should exercise caution on the road and they should also follow the stipulated speed on the section of the road which they will be using,” said Chazovachiyi.
Meanwhile, another accident happened on that same road on the same day in Featherstone at 95 km peg. Three passengers were injured.
