A four-year-old girl died while 24 passengers were injured when a truck collided with Zupco commuter omnibus along Khami road in Bulawayo on Tuesday morning.
One passenger is in critical condition at Mpilo Hospital.
Bulawayo Police spokesperson Inspector Abednico Ncube confirmed the incident.
“We have received a report of fatal road accident this morning in Bulawayo along Khami road where at an intersection after Nkulumane complex an open truck knocked a ZUPCO registered Kombi which rolled several times hitting another Kombi that was on the road leading to the injury of 24 passengers,” said Inspector Ncube.
He said the four-year child died on her way to the hospital.
“Another passenger is admitted at Mpilo and her condition is critical,” said Inspector Ncube.
The police spokesperson said they are worried about the conduct of drivers on the road.
