50 dead in bus collision
A head-on collision between two buses has killed at least 50 people in Zimbabwe where road accidents are common due to poor roads and bad driving. Two long-distance buses going opposite directions collided near Rusape, about 170km east of the capital Harare. The death toll could rise because there 80 others admitted to hospital, some with serious injuries. One of the buses tried to pass two haulage trucks on a stretch of the road where overtaking is prohibited. Both buses were speeding, she said.
