He said yesterday that the accident involved a Nissan minibus  registration number BAB 58 driven by Davies Chandila, 46, of Molite Township in Livingstone.

The accident happened because of a mechanical fault involving a tyre burst and in the process the vehicle overturned.

  5. The driver was overspeeding. Accidents should not always result in deaths. if the driver was going at 60km/h or 70km/h, there would be no need to overturn even with a tyre burst if one is a competent driver. Condolences to the bereaved family
