By A Correspondent- Several passengers travelling in a Toyota Wish are feared dead after their vehicle collided head-on with an Inter-Africa Bus near Matizha Business Centre in Gutu this morning.

A motorist who arrived soon after the accident alleged that out of the estimated eight people from the Toyota Wish, only one person survived the accident and he (the motorist) took the survivor to Matizha Clinic.

However, the police are yet to confirm details of the tragic incident.

A ZimEye source however revealed that an eyewitness claimed that the accident occured when an Inter-Africa bus was trying to overtake another bus before it encroached into the lane of the oncoming Toyota Wish.

The Toyota Wish reportedly swerved off the road but the bus did the same resulting in the head on collision.

During the covid-19 induced Lockdown, government banned private kombis allowing only those registered under ZUPCO to operate resulting in little non-commercial vehicles overloading passengers.

Last month, government announced a waiver and gave the greenlight to buses plying rurla routes to commence operations.

However, the transport sector is also now dominated by “mushikashika” vehicles some of which include Toyota Wish and Honda fit vehicles. Although these vehicles have capacity to carry 4 passengers, some end up carrying as many as nine passengers.

Gutu Police is attending the scene.

This is a developing story.
