A witness, who spoke to NewsDay said the musician failed to control the car soon after overtaking a lorry and rammed into the stationary cars.
“Stunner had stopped at the traffic lights at the corner Jason Moyo Avenue and Fourth Street and when touts realised that it was him they started cheering him and he took off at high speed and failed to control the car after overtaking another vehicle and rammed into four parked cars, injuring one person who was rushed to hospital in an ambulance,” the witness said.
“After the accident, he sought refuge at a pharmacy. Two gentlemen who claimed to be the owners of the car from a local car sale later came to the scene with fellow musicians Ngoni Kambarami and Exq also arriving a few minutes later.”
Both Stunner and police spokesperson Chief Superintended Paul Nyathi could not be reached for comment as
their mobile phones went unanswered.
