Driver of a Toyota Land Cruiser belonging to Total Land Care has been injured after his motor vehicle swerved into a bush near Siyasiya in Salima.
An eyewitness told Malawi24 that the motor vehicle was coming from the direction of Nkhotakota heading to Salima with one passenger on board. The car was also carrying motorbikes.
According to the eyewitness, the driver was overspeeding and this led to the accident.
“The driver was overspeeding the car and then he lost control of the vehicle that led to its swerving to the nearby roadside,” she told Maawi24.
Following the incident, the driver sustained injuries and was rushed to Salima District Hospital for medical treatment while the passenger escaped unhurt.
There has been a spike in road accidents in Malawi over the past month which has forced the police to introduce tough road traffic laws and heavy punishments for offenders.
