FOUR people died on the spot while several others were seriously injured when an Eagle Liner bus which was travelling from South Africa was involved in a head on collision with a private car in Mvuma yesterday.

The dead, including the driver, were all in the private car which was travelling towards Masvingo from Harare.

National police spokesperson Chief Superintendent Paul Nyathi confirmed the accident, which occurred at the 211 km peg along Harare-Masvingo road around 10AM yesterday.

“I can confirm that an accident occurred around 10 am involving a cross border bus and a private car. All the occupants of the car died on the spot while the injured people from the bus were ferried to hospital,” he said.

Chief Supt Nyathi said they were still to ascertain the number of the injured passengers from the bus.

He said names of the deceased persons were being withheld as their next of kin were yet to be  contacted.

Chief Supt Nyathi said preliminary investigations indicate that the driver of the private car lost control of the vehicle resulting in him encroaching onto the bus’ lane.

“For now the details are still sketchy, but l understand that the driver of the car lost control of his vehicle and he encroached on the other lane leading to a head on collision. The private car was trapped under the bus and the fire brigade crew had to be called in to remove the car from under the bus. For now we are not sure how many people were injured since the investigations are not yet completed,” he said.

Eagle Liner officials refused to  comment when contacted yesterday.

    Am here to thank Mama Chizoba +27607924740 for bringing back my boyfriend. I broke up with my boyfriend because he found out that I was flirting with his friend he told me that he will never want to see me again in his life. I regretted the day I messed up because he was a perfect guy ok everyone had his or her weakness and he was a busy man who give me little time on his busy schedule I always missed him, his messages just like lovers. My heart was hurt because what I expected from him I never got it which forced me to go into a trap of his friend who was always available but my heart loved him. Due to depression I desperately started looking for a spell caster who can help me get my man back indeed I found so many but most of them where scammers luckily enough I found a page Best love spell caster Mama Chizoba I said to myself let me give a last try on this one due to testimonies I read from that page and indeed this lady did miracles for me.
