“I can confirm there was a fatal road traffic accident at 31 km along Morgenster-Masvingo Road.
“The driver of the kombi was travelling towards Masvingo and allegedly lost control of the vehicle,” saidAsst Comm Nyathi.
Asst Comm Nyathi said the vehicle, a Toyota Hiace veered off the road to the right, hit a tree and overturned once before landing on its right side killing three people instantly.
Asst Comm Nyathi said the driver immediately fled from the scene.
“Surprisingly, the driver ran away after the accident and yet we expect him to cooperate with the police. We have however launched a manhunt and the long arm of the law will catch up with him,” he said.
He advised the motoring public to be extra cautious when traveling on national roads , especially towards the festive season when traffic volume is usually high.
Motorists were also expected to be responsible and ensure that they supported the spirit of road safety.
“Motorists should just be responsible and drive cautiously without speeding. They should learn to be responsible so that they make sure that they do not cause unnecessary road carnage which has claimed many lives.”
Masvingo has accounted for many deaths as a result of road traffic accidents with the Masvingo–Beitbridge highway now being deemed arguably the most dangerous road in the country owing to runaway carnage. herald
