Driver Escapes Fuel Tanker Explosion In

A truck driver sustained serious burns when his fuel tanker exploded after sideswiping another vehicle in Nyazura on Wednesday.

The Harare-bound truck was carrying 42 000 litres of petrol worth over US$50 000 when it caught fire at the settlement located about 150km south-east of Harare.

Police said a Toyota Land Cruiser vehicle encroached into the tanker’s lane, leading to the sideswipe.

No fatalities were reported, and the trucker is in stable condition, police further stated.

Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) Manicaland provincial spokesperson Inspector Luxson Chananda said:

The truck driver sustained serious burns but is in stable condition while the driver of the Land Cruiser sustained minor injuries.

In February, another fuel tanker overturned in Harare, spilling 10 000 litres of diesel. The Traffic Safety Council of Zimbabwe says about 90 per cent of road accidents are a result of human error.
