By A Correspondent- Seven people have died on the spot, while 13 others were injured in a car accident along Selbourne-Aberfoyle Road near Hauna Growth Point.

Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said the fatal road traffic accident occurred on Sunday at about 1800 hours in Honde Valley.

He said the car accident involved a 35-year-old male who was driving a Mercedes Benz Ateco truck along Selbourne-Aberfoyle Road with 23 passengers on board and 65 bags of bananas.

” On approaching the 30 km peg, the driver failed to negotiate a curve and lost control of the vehicle. The vehicle veered off the road, overturned once and landed on its side,” he said.

The bodies were ferried to Hauna District Hospital for post mortem while the injured were referred to the same institution for treatment.
