Three dead after car crashes into tree

Three people died and two were seriously injured after a car crash in the early hours of Wednesday along 12th Avenue near Bulawayo Athletic Club.

Bulawayo police spokesperson Inspector Abednico Ncube confirmed the incident adding that it was due to human error.

The two passengers who are critically ill were ferried to United Bulawayo Hospital (UBH) for treatment.

“Circumstances are that both parties were travelling along 12th avenue extension due West intending to turn left into Bulawayo athletic club. One of the drivers hit the other vehicle on the rear right back wheel causing the driver to lose control of the motor vehicle which veered off the road and hit a tree,” said Inspector Ncube.

Inspector Ncube said the suspect will be charged with culpable homicide.

Inspector Ncube added, “Most of the accidents are caused by human error and can be avoided. Speed and inattention have been found to be the most prevalent causes of fatal accidents we are receiving. Motorists are urged to apply themselves fully to save lives and avoid unnecessary accidents.”
