Many lives lost as bus collides with fuel tanker in Zimbabwe

A Christmas tragedy has once again hit Zimbabwe in what could be the country's worst ever Christmas bus accident. 

Many people are feared dead after a Beta transport bus collided with with a fuel tanker. 

The accident occurred on Friday night near Mutare.

The bus is a 72 seater and it's still not clear how many passengers were on board. 

Zimbabwean buses are well known to carry lots of passengers with many standing. 

According to eyewitnesses who were the first to arrive at the scene, a lot of people were burnt alive. 

The eye witnesses added that they managed to rescue about 7 people before flames engulfed the whole area, burning all the people who had been trapped in both the bus and tanker.

If the numbers of passengers who were aboard the bus is confirmed, this is set to become one of the worst accidents ever to hit Zimbabwe.
