PC Kariba coach Sunday “Mhofu” Chidzambwa was yesterday involved in a car accident which left one man injured in Kariba.
Chidzambwa who is the ZPC Kariba coach was a passenger in a vehicle that hit a pedestrian and then ploughed into a house.
The pedestrian identified as Courage Ndoroyerwizi was taken to Kariba Hospital where he was admitted after suffering bruises on his arm and injuries to his right leg.
One of the on-lookers said the vehicle, a Honda Fit was not seriously damaged.
Chidzambwa was not picking up his phone yesterday, but he visited the victim in hospital.
