MASVINGO – Two people, a man and a toddler were killed in a road accident near Masvingo – Great Zimbabwe Monuments turn off along Masvingo – Beitbridge Highway this afternoon.
The accident occurred just outside Dreamwoods Lodge at around 2: 30 pm in the new Clipsham Heights Suburb and four people who were seriously injured were ferried by ambulances to Masvingo Provincial Hospital.
The Mirror attended the scene and found the deceased’s bodies wrapped on the roadside. The bodies were later taken away by Police. The Mirror could not get a comment from Police at the time of going to Press.
Eye witnesses told The Mirror that a Mazda Demio coming from Beitbridge towards Masvingo tried to overtake a haulage truck and had a head on collision with a Honda CRV driving from Masvingo City and turning right at Dreamwoods Lodge junction.
Both deceased were in the Mazda Demio. Sources said one of the deceased was the driver of the Demio. Three of the injured were in the Demio while the fourth is said to be the driver of the CVR who was traveling alone.
“The Mazda Demio seemed to have been travelling in high speed and it tried to overtake a haulage truck resulting in the head-on collision,” said Monica Chipumho, one of the eye witnesses.
