3-Car Crash Leaves 3 Dead at Redcliff fly-over


At least three people died on the spot in a three-vehicle crash at Redcliff fly-over, along the Gweru-Kwekwe highway Saturday morning.

According to Midlands police spokesperson, Inspector Joel Goko the accident happened at about 8am.

The three are reportedly to have died on the spot after a Toyota D4D they were travelling was involved in a head on collision with a Delta beverages haulage truck along the  Gweru-Kwekwe highway.

He said the driver of the Toyota D4D twin cab who was driving towards Kwekwe, attempted to overtake at a continuous line when the vehicle  was then involved in a head-on collision with the on-coming  Delta haulage truck.

“The driver and two other occupants of the Toyota D4D died on the spot while another passenger was rushed to Kwekwe General Hospital,” said Insp Goko

He said there was also pile up due to the limited navigation space at the fly over.

“A Kombi which the D4D truck was trying to overtake leading to the accident  was also involved in a pile up. There were no serious injuries in the Kombi but we still need to make a follow up at the hospital,” he said.
