ONE person died while seven others, including Guruve South legislator Edward Chindori-Chininga were injured when their vehicles collided in Concession yesterday.

The accident occurred near the 5km peg along Mazowe-Centenary Road at around 10am involving Chininga's Mercedes Benz and a Nissan pick up truck.

Chininga who was alone was heading towards Guruve while the truck was headed for Harare with eight passengers.

National Traffic police spokesperson Inspector Tigere Chigome confirmed the accident.

He said the injured were taken to Concession Hospital while Chininga was taken to West End Hospital in Harare. They were all reported to be in stable conditions, while the body of the woman who died in the accident was taken to Concession Hospital mortuary.

Insp Chigome said the driver of the pick-up truck tried to overtake a commuter omnibus. The driver of the kombi is reported to have accelerated resulting in the collision.

"The commuter omnibus driver sped off after the accident. Investigations are still in progress to ascertain the cause of the accident," Insp Chigome said.

The Benz and truck were extensively damaged.

According to witnesses, Chininga was trapped in his vehicle for about 30 minutes before he was rescued.




Chininga's young brother Mr Victor Chindori-Chininga said: "I was told that the truck driver failed to avoid the Mercedes Benz when he tried to overtake a commuter omnibus.

"When the kombi driver saw that the accident was imminent, he accelerated leaving the two vehicles."
