Train Accident-vert

ReReport: Train suicides becoming popular, claimed 20 lives in a short space of time. National Railways of Zimbabwe (NRZ) Midlands Traffic Chief, Superintendent Nyembesi Mureri said 20 people have been crushed to death in Gweru this year after throwing themselves at moving trains. She said this during the NRZ Safety Week celebrations on Friday, adding that another eight were injured at rail crossings.

Suicide by lying down in front of speeding trains becoming popular. Throwing oneself in front of, or under a speeding train, as a way of committing suicide is becoming “popular” in Gweru as twenty people have killed themselves this way in the city this year alone. Said Mureri:

The number of people who commit suicide by throwing themselves at moving trains is disturbing. She also urged motorists to exercise caution at railway crossings as many accidents were happening there. Said Mureri:

Also of concern is the increasing number of people injured in accidents at railway crossings and we urge motorists to exercise caution. NRZ urges extreme caution among drivers when they approach railway crossings. We must protect and save precious lives.

It is saddening to note that accidents continue to occur at rail /road level crossings despite that drivers are aware of the need to exercise extreme caution whenever approaching rail/road level crossings.

Recently, an unidentified man threw himself in front of a moving train and was crushed to death near Cold Comfort in Harare. The incident happened around 3 PM on 13 March a few metres from a road and railway junction near Herentals college in Cold Comfort.
