accident 02-01-11.jpgThree people died on the spot and seven others were injured when they were run over by a haulage truck at Waverly Bus Stop in Kadoma yesterday.

Police say the accident occurred when a Tombs bus encroached onto the road from a bus stop and collided with an oncoming haulage truck which in turn veered off the road on impact, hitting two kombis and the 10 people in the process.

Police Spokesperson for Mashonaland West Province, Inspector Clemence Mabweazara said four of the injured were in a critical condition while three have already been discharged from Kadoma hospital after receiving treatment.

He said the Tombs bus driver hurriedly took off from the bus stop without due care as he tried to run away from municipal police who wanted to clamp the bus for wrongful parking.
