TWENTY people have been seriously injured after a vehicle carrying mourners and a body in a coffin collided head-on with another vehicle.
Among those injured were three police officers from Lilayi Police College and drivers of both vehicles.
The accident happened yesterday near Sandies Creations around 10:30 hours on Kafue road.
Zambia Police assistant public relations Officer Esther Katongo, who confirmed the development, said yesterday in a statement that the 20, who were seriously injured, were rushed to the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) for medical attention.
Ms Katongo said the accident involved a Toyota Hilux registration number ABZ 2611 which was being driven by Geoffrey Musolo, 35, of SOS and a Toyota Hiace registration number ALK 3520 driven by Kelvin Chakamisha, 38, of Lilayi, who was driving from South to North.
