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.

    This is a result of 37 years of people going Bonkers with the Zanu Bonkers mentality. If people obeyed the rules of the road instead of thinking they were special because they were Bonkers – this may not happen?

      Dimwit 16 people died!! It was an accident ,have a thought at least for the families who lost loved ones who had to be traveling at that hour and not going on some joyride. ZANU is most probably responsible for your emotional constipation too!!
