In a devastating incident this afternoon, a fatal accident involving two haulage trucks and a Toyota Sienta has resulted in the loss of four lives. The incident occurred approximately 6km outside Chegutu along the Harare-Bulawayo Road.
Efforts to obtain a comment from Police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyati were unsuccessful at the time of reporting.
Witnesses who sell vegetables along the highway told The Herald that the Toyota Sienta was hit at the back by a truck as the driver had reduced speed to allow the vehicle in front to make a right turn into the Bryden School.
The Toyota swerved to the left lane where it was hit on the side by another haulage truck coming from the Harare direction.
The vehicle was dragged for nearly 60 metres.
Mashonaland West Minister of State for Provincial Affairs and Devolution, Marian Chombo visited the scene where she lamented negligent driving.
