"Three people were seriously injured with deep head cuts, arm cuts, one lady died on the spot, she was trapped on the bus

Victims were taken to Saint Lukes hospital and Mpilo hospital, and the witness says that the ambulance arrived 45 minutes late in a stretch less than ten KM along Vic Falls - Bulawayo highway.

"The driver of the truck could have slept on the wheel, he tried to escape but a good samaritan tailed him and he got arrested in Lupane," said Ndiweni.
