Three people were killed in a road traffic accident involving a Mazda Bongo truck and a haulage truck last night near Chinhoyi.

According to police, all the victims were aboard the Mazda Bongo truck.

Police spokesperson for Mashonaland West Inspector Clemence Mabgeazara said the two vehicles collided head-on after the Mazda Bongo truck encroached onto the right lane ahead of an oncoming haulage truck.

The Bongo was driving towards Harare and was loaded with tobacco bales destined for the auction floors.
