FOUR people died on the spot while two others escaped with injuries after a lorry rammed into the back of another lorry along the Chinhoyi-Chegutu road in Zvimba district, Monday evening.

Police confirmed the accident on its X handles saying the injured were taken to Murombedzi Hospital while the deceased were taken to the same institution's mortuary for post-mortem.

Zvimba district development coordinator and district civil protection unit (CPU) chairman, Mr Joseph Manyurapasi said the government was going to help the bereaved families and the injured.

Meanwhile, the province is also in mourning following the death of four artisanal miners after the collapse of a shaft at Kangela Mine, Chikuti area in Mhangura constituency last Friday.

This follows yet another deadly mining accident that saw at least ten people perishing at Bay Horse Mine in Chegutu at the end of September after a shaft caved in.
