Road Accident Claims Three Family Members Along Bulawayo Beitbridge Road:
A tragic road accident claimed three family members along the Bulawayo-Beitbridge road. The three were travelling to Gwanda when the accident happened.
The three family members were identified as, Mbusiso Moyo (55), his wife Patience Ncube (40) and their 13-year-old son. According to the Chronicle, the three died on the spot on Saturday at around 3 PM in Mbalabala area along Bulawayo-Beitbridge road.
Acting police spokesperson for Matabeleland South province, Inspector Loveness Mangena said Mbusiso Moyo was speeding towards Gwanda when he lost control of his Toyota twin cab and collided with a honda truck in the opposite lane.
I can confirm a fatal road accident which occurred at Mbalabala area along the Bulawayo-Beitbridge Road where three people died on the spot. Mbuso Moyo was driving a Toyota twin cab along the said road headed towards Gwanda.
When he got to the 66-kilometre peg, he lost control of the vehicle and encroached onto the oncoming traffic lane where a Hodo Sino Truck was approaching headed for Bulawayo.
The driver of the truck moved to the extreme left side of his lane in order to avoid the vehicle but without luck, which resulted in a head-on collision. Moyo, his wife and child died on the spot and their bodies were taken to Filabusi District Hospital mortuary, Insp Mangena said.
Insp Mangena however, urged motorists to avoid the loss of life by exercising extreme caution when driving on slippery roads during this rainy season.
We urge motorists to observe road regulations and exercise extreme caution in order to avoid loss of life. Especially now that we are in the rainy season where roads will be slippery and vision will be blurred, drivers have to be very cautious and where necessary they would rather park their vehicles until it’s conducive for them to drive. she said.
