19 Killed As Truck Plunges Into River In Zambia

Truck carrying 57 passengers lost control due to over speeding, overloading, say police.

At least 19 people were killed and five others injured when a truck they were traveling on overturned and plunged into a river in Mungwi district north of Zambia on Wednesday, an official said.
In a statement, Jestus Nsokolo, regional police chief, said the truck carrying 57 people, mostly traders of a mobile phone market, lost control due to over-speeding and overloading.
He said the bodies were sent to a hospital mortuary, and the injured were hospitalized. The truck driver was on the run, he added.
