13 perish during Heroes Day holiday

Five people perished in a head-on collision involving a commuter omnibus and a Volkswagen Passat along Harare-Mutare Road yesterday morning just after the Goromonzi turn-off. Eye witnesses said the commuter omnibus driver lost control of the vehicle after a tyre burst before encroaching into the opposite lane resulting in the collision.

AT least 13 people died and 67 others were injured in separate road accidents that occurred during the just-ended Heroes’ Day and Defence Forces’ Day holidays, with police citing speeding as the major contributing factor.

National police spokesperson, Chief Superintendent Paul Nyathi said 57 fatalities were recorded during the same period last year.

Nyathi said police this week issued 8 377 tickets for various traffic offences, down from 10 805 tickets issued last year.

“Of late, police have recorded cases of motorists speeding, where they end up losing control and killing pedestrians trying to cross roads or standing at bus stops,” he said, adding the heavy police presence on major highways had helped in curtailing more road carnage.
