50 dead in bus col­li­sion

The Northern Advocate - - World -

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.
