Bulawayo Fire Brigade Chief Fire officer Richard Peterson confirmed the accident which happened late on Wednesday at around 11:00 pm.
Five people survived the crash with three seriously injured taken to United Bulawayo Hospital for treatment. The truck driver survived the accident.
“The driver is saying the truck reportedly hit a pothole and lost control before its load fell on the Kombi,” Peterson said.
It is believed that after the truck hit a pothole its front wheel locked thereby forcing it to lose control and land on the commuter omnibus.
