A video has gone viral of a deadly head-on collision involving a bus and a truck in Zambia in which an eyewitness said many lives, some Zimbabweans, were lost.
The bus was South African, and heading to Tanzania, suspected to have had mostly Zimbabwean passengers going on business.
The truck, on the other hand, was Tanzanian and coming to Zambia.
The head-on crash, according to the eyewitness, happened at Selenje, and was a result of the truck encroaching onto the opposite lane while trying to overtake.
Five of the eight passengers in the truck died on the spot, including the driver, according to the witness. The number of lives lost on the bus is unknown, but the eyewitness put the figure as high.
