ONE person died while 16 were injured after a Checheche bound Inter Africa bus was involved in an accident in Goromonzi yesterday.
The accident happened at 27km peg along Harare-Marondera road.
“The incident happened at 0620am and 25 passengers were on board. The bus was trying to overtake then it veered off the road before overturning. One of the passengers was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital while other 16 were injured,” national police spokesperson Paul Nyathi said.
Nyathi urged drivers to drive with caution to save people’s lives.
“The roads are slippery as we are in the rainy season hence drivers should travel at a recommended speed such that they will always have control of the vehicle,” Nyathi said.
