A Bulawayo man died on the spot, Monday after a vehicle he was driving fell off the Mzilikazi flyover.
Bulawayo police spokesperson Inspector Abednico Ncube identified the deceased as Dumisani Sibanda, 59, who was driving a white Mercedes Benz vehicle which was extensively damaged.
The incident happened in the early hours of Monday.
“The deceased Dumisani Sibanda aged 59 years was driving a Mercedes Benz with no passenger on board when he lost control of the vehicle at the Luveve-City Flyover resulting in the vehicle veering off the road and hitting the railway line before rolling several times,” said Inspector Ncube.
He said a report was made to the police and the fire brigade was summoned.
Inspector Ncube urged drivers to be extra cautious especially during the rainy season.
“It’s best to rest and only to drive when fit to do so. Roads are normally slippery during the rainy season and vision is likely to be blurred due to bad weather. Let’s drive with caution,” said Inspector Ncube.
