The accident occurred near the village of Ngundu in Zimbabwe’s Masvingo Province, located in the country’s southeast, when the passenger bus overturned at a curve. According to reports, the driver of the Mega-Link bus, which was headed toward Beitbridge, was speeding when he lost control of the vehicle, steering off the highway and rolling over.
