At least 20 people were seriously injured when a 30-seater minibus registration MZ7065, which was headed for Mzuzu from Mzimba, collided with a three-tonne Mitsubishi Canter registration BL9371 belonging to Raiply.
The accident happened at Zomwanda near the Elephant Rock on the M1Road. The minibus overturned and glided on its side for about 100 metres, seriously injuring those who sat on the left side. Many well-wishers, including motorists going to Mzuzu, stopped and helped the injured who were taken to Mzuzu Central Hospital.–The picture (above) shows men pull out one of the passengers of the three-tonner who had his legs trapped due to the impact and (R) the minibus. —Govati Nyirenda.
