6 People perish in Horror crash

Six people died while two others were
seriously injured when a pick-up truck they
were travelling in veered off the road and hit
a tree along Esigodini-Falcon Road in
Esigodini on Sunday evening.
Chief police spokesperson Senior Assistant
Commissioner Charity Charamba said the two
injured were taken to United Bulawayo
Hospital where they are still admitted.
“A Nissan pickup was travelling along
Esigodini-Falcon Road near Esigodini Business
Centre with seven passengers on board. On
approaching the 3km peg on the said road,
the driver lost control of the vehicle, which
veered off to the right and rammed a tree.
“Five passengers died on the spot and the
other one died on admission at Esigodini
District Hospital. Two other people were
injured and are admitted at United Bulawayo
Hospital,” she said.
She urged motorists to exercise caution when
driving on the roads to avoid loss of lives.
Last month, 13 people died, including five
family members, in separate road traffic
accidents that were recorded during three
days in Mvuma and Mvurwi.
Police said 10 people were seriously injured in
the accidents.
