accident 02-01-11 3.jpgOne person died and several people were injured when a Masvingo bound bus overturned and rolled three times at the thirty kilometre peg along the Mutare-Masvingo highway this Saturday morning.

Eyewitnesses said the bus driver attempted to overtake two vehicles at the same time and had to swerve back to his lane on seeing that there were three oncoming vehicles ahead resulting in him losing control.

The eyewitnesses attributed the accident to over-speeding and poor judgement.

By the time the ZBC News crew arrived at the place of accident, most of the victims had already been ferried to Masvingo General Hospital.

Meanwhile, the name of the deceased is being withheld until the next of kin are advised.

Police are still investigating the cause of the accident.
