A parked haulage truck rolled on a steep slope in Chinhoyi's central business district (CBD) and smashed a parked Toyota Hilux vehicle before ramming into a shop and trapping people inside.

The haulage truck was left with its engine running when its driver disembarked and started arguing with another motorist who was offloading goods from his lorry.

Witnesses say the haulage truck rolled down along a delivery pathway unattended and hit a parked Toyota Hilux, damaged an electricity pole before ramming into a shop causing panic to people who got trapped inside the building.

Owner of the shop that was rammed into said he was terrified as the incident happened in a flash, and was lucky to be alive as he was close to the entrance when the freak accident happened.

The total value of the damage to the shop and the two vehicles is yet to be ascertained.

Meanwhile, the man who was involved in an argument with the truck driver disappeared into thin air as soon as the haulage truck started sliding down the slope.
