Four die, 26 injured in bus, truck collission

A head on collision between a Power tools long distance bus and a Volvo truck has left four people dead while 26 others were rushed to Kabwe General hospital with different degrees of injuries, some are said to be in the Intensive care Unit (ICU).

Chinese made Zhong Tong bus registration number ABG and travelling to Lusaka last night collided head on with a Volvo truck registration number ALF 3850 near Kabwe’s Chindwin Barracks along the Great North Road. The truck driver has gone into hiding and police are looking for him.

The great north Road has claimed many lives but government has ignored people’s calls to make it a dual carriage way to reduce the accidents. It is along the same road where 56 people perished during the fatal Post bus accident in Chibombo about two years ago.
