Three people died Tuesday night when a bus ferrying mourners to a funeral collided with a timber-laden haulage truck in Dema along the Chitungiwza- Wedza Road.
Witnesses said the accident occurred at around 8pm when the bus, which was heading towards Wedza, side-swiped with a lorry, resulting in the deaths and several injuries.
The injured were taken to Chitungwiza Hospital.
Although police were not immediately available for comment, information received by NewsDay through its Whatsapp platform indicate that the bus had excess standing passengers while the timber in the truck was not safely secured and might have overlapped to the other lane, resulting in the accident.
