Dar Es Salaam – At least three students have been killed and two others seriously injured in a road accident in Tanzania’s northern region of Arusha, the Police said on Friday.
Salum Hamduni, Arusha Regional Police Commander, said the students from Olmoti Secondary School were killed on Thursday along the East Africa Community road.
Hamduni told a news conference in the city of Arusha that the students, who were walking on a sidewalk, were knocked by a car that veered off the road.
“The students were walking home from school when the grisly accident occurred,’’ said the police officer.
He said the driver of the car will appear in court after preliminary investigations.
Hamduni said the two injured students were rushed to nearby state-run Mount Meru Hospital for treatment.
