FOUR passengers escaped with minor bruises after a ZUPCO bus they were travelling in was involved in a road traffic accident with a haulage truck along Samora Machel Avenue on Wednesday.

A ZUPCO bus driver only identified as Munyonga said the haulage truck could have failed its brakes and to stop and hit the bus at a traffic lights controlled intersection of Seventh Street and Samora Machel Avenue.

"I had few passengers on board heading to Sally Mugabe Heights and four of them escaped with minor bruises," said Munyonga.

"Traffic lights were in favour of me when the haulage truck suddenly hit my bus while I was already by the intersection along Seventh Street.

"The Haulage truck driver apologised saying his truck brakes  failed and was left with no option other than swerving to the pavement to avoid me and I thank God who saved people's lives," he added.

The Haulage truck driver refused to entertain H-Metro for further questions and identify himself arguing that police was handling the accident and his boss was still to give him permission to comment.

"I was coming from Msasa that is all I can say at the moment since the accident is now being attended by police," said the haulage truck driver refusing to clarify on his destination and the load.
