A child (8) who was knocked down by a public service motor vehicle opposite a vegetable market in Magwegwe when she was trying to cross the road died at Mpilo hospital where she was admitted. 

Bulawayo Police Spokesperson Inspector Abednico Ncube  said  the  juvenile was run over by a commuter omnibus. 

"A driver of a public service vehicle who was driving a commuter omnibus Nissan Caravan knocked down a juvenile at Magwegwe that had disembarked on an unknown motor vehicle and was intending to cross the road," he said.

"As a result of the accident she sustained various injuries, including head injuries and was ferried to Mpilo hospital where she died on admission."

Ncube added that the driver is facing charges of culpable homicide. 

The ZRP is concerned as most accidents that happen in the western suburbs  are attributed to human error. 

Speeding and inattention have been noted as the prevalent  cause of road accidents.
