Chaotic scene unfolds as kombi collides with train at level crossing


Commuter omnibus collides with national railways locomotive at level crossing

In a harrowing incident at the Paisley Road level crossing in Harare, a commuter omnibus carrying passengers was struck by a National Railways locomotive after the driver failed to yield right of way.

The collision sent shockwaves through the area and left authorities scrambling to assess the situation.

According to a statement released on the official National Railways of Zimbabwe (NRZ) Twitter account, the driver of the omnibus and all the passengers on board fled the scene on foot. The NRZ expressed concern over the incident and confirmed that the matter is now under investigation by the police.

“The driver and all his passengers fled from the scene on foot. The matter is being investigated by the police,” stated the NRZ in their Twitter post.

This unfortunate incident serves as a stark reminder of the importance of exercising caution and adhering to safety protocols when approaching and crossing railway lines. The NRZ has taken this opportunity to urge both members of the public and motorists to exercise extreme caution when in the vicinity of railway tracks. By doing so, potential accidents resulting in loss of life and injuries can be prevented.

Railway crossings demand heightened attention and adherence to safety procedures from all road users. Negligence or failure to comply with traffic regulations at such crossings can have devastating consequences, as witnessed in this collision. It is crucial for drivers to respect the warning signs and signals in place, giving way to oncoming trains and ensuring the safety of all passengers on board.
