Tombs bus accident kills three

Three people died on the spot and five others were seriously injured in a horrific accident involving a Tombs bus and a haulage truck along Zvishavane road near Lundi Bridge.

The Gweru-bound bus, which was travelling from Beitbridge in the early hours of Wednesday morning, is said to have side-swiped with a haulage truck which had overlapping pipes that ripped off the windscreen of the bus resulting in the driver losing control.

The bus swerved off the road and overturned, before landing on its roof, killing three on the spot and seriously injuring five who were rushed to Shurugwi hospital while some were taken to Gweru hospital.
