Three people have been killed in a grisly road accident along the Rodi Kopany-Ndhiwa highway.
The trio died when a trailer they were travelling in lost control and overturned on a sharp bent section of the road.
It is alleged that the driver of the trailer which was transporting sugarcane lost its control after hitting several potholes in one of the bridges constructed at one of the sharp corners on the road.
