At least 47 people have died in a crash involving two buses near the Rusape tollgate in Zimbabwe, state broadcaster ZBC reported on Wednesday.
Police have so far identified 47 bodies at the accident scene, ZBC reported, citing a spokesperson for the police department.
"We confirm 47 people have died in a road traffic accident at the 166 kilometers peg along the Harare-Mutare highway," police spokesman Paul Nyathi said.
According to ZBC, of the 47 dead, 45 are adults while two are children.
The buses were traveling between the capital, Harare, and the town of Mutare.
Like in many other African nations, traffic accidents are common in Zimbabwe due to poor road infrastructure and insufficient road worthiness of vehicles.
