Three people died on the spot while five others were seriously injured when a Tombs Motorways bus collided with the trailer of a haulage truck along the Shurugwi-Zvishavane road on Wednesday.

The Gweru-bound bus, which was travelling from Beitbridge is said to have side-swiped with a haulage truck which had overlapping pipes that ripped off the windscreen of the bus resulting in the driver losing control. 35 passengers were on-board.

Police spokesperson Chief Superintendent Paul Nyathi said the truck driver, who was heading in the opposite direction, did not stop at the accident scene.

Nyathi said four injured passengers were treated at Shurugwi District Hospital and discharged.

He said three critically injured passengers were referred to Gweru General Hospital.
