Thirty people were killed — 28 of them on the spot — while 36 others were seriously injured when a Pfochez bus burst a tyre and side-swiped a Mercedes Benz Sprinter commuter omnibus at the 232km peg along the Harare-Bulawayo Highway yesterday.

Both drivers did not survive.

Two more passengers died on admission to Kwekwe District Hospital, while 32 others were in critical condition.

Police Officer Commanding Midlands Province Senior Assistant Commissioner Abigail Moyo said tragedy struck at around 1:30pm near Kwekwe River, 20km outside Kwekwe.
