16 year old boy escapes death from a run away pickup up

Machinga, July 4,2014: A 16 year old boy from Molipa Trading Center in Machinga escaped death Wednesday afternoon after a three tonner pick up loaded with rice lost direction and drove through a house where the boy was having a siesta.

A Toyota Dyan registration number BS 1906 was driving from Nsanama Trading Center towards Liwonde Township, according to Henry Waesi who escaped death by some inches.


He explained that the vehicle lost direction and headed towards the house where it went through it and stopped on rubbles.
“The house is almost inhabitable,” said Henry who was being escorted to Machinga District Hospital where he was treated as an outpatient.

Henry is said to have heard a sudden clash, had seen a vehicle loaded with bags of rice with two passenger sitting on the front seat then the vehicle went past him and suddenly stopped in the dust.

The bang attracted a lot of people from the trading center who rushed to the accident scene only to discover that there were no serious casualties despite the huge, movie like house damage.

“I was lucky because the rubbles did not fall on me,” said Henry who only sustained a minor leg injury.

The Waesi family are renting a house belonging to Central East African Railways (Cear) at Molipa Railway Station about 10 Kilometers from Liwonde Township.

The family has shifted their property into an undamaged bedroom as they are looking for another house.

“A living room and another bed room are completely damaged,” added Waesi who said the vehicle’s driver sustained a minor injury while two other passengers were not hurt.

“Surprisingly, the vehicle has minor dents and its windscreen is intact despite the impact,” Waesi added.

Cear houses at Molipa were built close to the Liwonde-Namwera main road and a Liwonde Nayuchi railway line such that the houses are situated on accident prone area.
