Three people were killed in a head-on collision between Beitbridge town and Malala village late Sunday.
Several others were injured in the accident that occurred along the Beitbridge to Bulawayo road.
It is reported that a Toyota Corolla carrying mourners was heading towards the border town when it collided with a Toyota Quantum that was travelling in the opposite direction.
Following the collision, the quantum caught fire trapping one person who died instantly and two others from the Toyota Corolla were also killed.
The bodies have since been conveyed to the local government mortuary.
The Officer Commanding Beitbridge district, Chief Superintendent Tichaona Nyongo said further investigations were underway last night.
“Three people were confirmed dead at the scene and we are still making further investigations to ascertain the number of those injured and their conditions.
“At the moment we are not able to release names of the deceased pending the notification of their next of kin,” he said.
