UPDATE On 11 Cars Involved In An Accident In Harare


Eleven (11) cars were involved in an accident at the intersection of Coca-Cola along Seke Road in Harare’s Graniteside industrial area on Tuesday morning.

Witnesses said the accident was caused by the driver of a bus who lost control of his vehicle following brake failure and crashed into an Isuzu truck, which landed on top of a Honda Fit vehicle, leading to a pile-up, but there were no fatalities. A witness told NewsDay:

The bus lost brakes and when it was trying to avoid an oncoming truck it rammed into a white pick-up truck which landed on top of a Honda Fit, leading to a pile-up accident. The white Isuzu truck had only one occupant and the Honda Fit had three occupants who were pulled out of the car by onlookers.

National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed the accident saying investigations were underway. He is cited as saying:

I can confirm that there was a multiple car accident in the morning at Coca-Cola intersection, Seke Road in Harare. There were minor injuries and a detailed statement is to be released in due course. Police investigations are underway.

Vendors at the intersection implored road authorities to fix the roads saying the area has become a black spot.

An onlooker urged the government to put humps on the Coca-Cola intersection saying many people have lost lives whilst vendors lost their wares due to these accidents.
