ONE person died on the spot today, while two others were seriously injured after a Mutare City traffic enforcement truck veered off the road and hit a tree during a high speed chase with a Chipinge-bound commuter omnibus.
The accident occurred just after the 22 miles turn-off along the Mutare-Masvingo Highway at around 11am.
Witnesses said the kombi crew were running away from the council cops after flouting traffic regulations in the city, resulting in the tragic high speed chase more than 30 km away from the Central Business District.
When the news crew visited the scene, the commuter omnibus at the centre of the unfortunate incident was nowhere to be found.
