Three people died on the spot while two others died at Gweru Provincial Hospital where they were receiving treatment. Seven other passengers were also injured and are receiving treatment at Gweru Provincial Hospital,” said the source.
Of the five victims, the source said four were from the same family.
“The four who died from the Toyota D4D are members of the same family. They included a woman and her two children and their sister-in-law. Ironically the sister-in-law had just been involved in an accident in Manicaland and they were coming from the scene,” said the source.
National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi could neither deny nor confirm the accident.
“I am not in the office at the moment. I will be able to provide the details and other information tomorrow (today),” he said.
