A couple luckily escaped death after their car overturned while they were fighting inside the car. The Toyota Vitz veered off the road and overturned several times before landing on its roof near Masvingo Polytechnic College, Zimbabwe.
According to Bulawayo24, the wife said she was furious when her husband accused her of having an affair.
“He (husband) came to town where I sell airtime and told me to get in the car saying he wanted to discuss something. When I got in, he started driving off the place punching me all over with one hand on the handle saying unodanana nabamunini vako (you are having an affair with my young brother), and it is funny that the boy being referred to is young enough to be my son.
“I then held his hand trying to save myself and that was when the vehicle veered off the road and overturned. It is a lie that I wanted the car to crash into an oncoming truck,” she said.
But, the husband has said the wife lied about what caused the accident. According to him, his wife wanted to commit suicide after they had a misunderstanding at home.
“We had a misunderstanding at home and I thought it was over. I was shocked when she pushed me off the handle turning the car
sideways. All she is telling the people now is not true,” he said.
The car was ruined but, the two are now receiving treatment.
