ONE person died upon admission to Kwekwe General Hospital while two others were injured when the vehicle they were travelling in veered off the road between Kwekwe and Gweru on Thursday last week.

Midlands police spokesperson Inspector Joel Goko confirmed the accident which happened at the 225km peg along the Harare-Bulawayo highway.

The accident happened at about 3am.

“I can confirm that one person died after the vehicle they were travelling in veered off the road. Two other people including the driver were injured and are admitted to Kwekwe General Hospital where they are said to be in a stable condition,” said Insp Goko.

The driver of the NP300 which was heading to Bulawayo reportedly failed to negotiate a curve, lost control of the vehicle before it rolled several times and landed on its side. Insp Goko urged people to avoid speeding.

“It is evident that the driver was speeding by failing to negotiate a curve. I therefore urge people to exercise extreme caution when travelling, avoid speeding and ensure that your vehicles are in good condition,” said Insp Goko.

The place around Redcliff turn-off has become a black spot with Redcliff authorities at one time proposing to conduct cleansing ceremonies at the spot after a spate of accidents.
