Many Feared Dead After Bus and Fuel Tanker Collide in Zimbabwe

Many people are feared to have died after a bus collided with a fuel tanker and burst into flames on a well-trafficked highway in Zimbabwe on Friday, December 24, according to eyewitnesses and local reports.

According to Zimbabwean media, police confirmed that at least four people died in the crash, which happened about 12 miles (20 km) outside the eastern city of Mutare on the Mutare Road, a highway connecting Mutare to the capital of Harare.

The county’s state-run broadcaster, ZBC, cited eyewitnesses as saying that they had managed to rescue “about seven people before flames engulfed the whole area.” Credit: Tendai via Storyful
