    Two people were run over and killed by a lorry yesterday afternoon in Beitbridge, barely 24 hours after 47 passengers lost their lives in another tragic accident near Rusape.
    One of the victims, a woman had her body flattened between the tarred road and the truck's huge wheels while the second victim died on his way to Beitbridge District Hospital.
    The accident happened at the Chicken Inn bus terminus and the woman who is believed to have been coming from Musina was sitting on her bag.
    The second victim is a vendor and was crashed after the woman called him for the boiled eggs that he was selling.
    Police could not release the names of the victims or comment on the accident at the time of going to Press.
    Sources told The Mirror that the lorry was carrying river sand and its breaks were dysfunctional. It is also understood that the driver who tried to overtake in front of oncoming traffic had no licence.
    The deceased woman's colleagues were buying food at Chicken Inn when she was crashed.
