According to reliable reports, the 14 seater matatu which belongs to neno nissan sacco that operates on the Nairobu Meru route was being driven at a very high speed and overlapping dangerously.
On reaching at Toll area on the way to Nairobi, the driver lost control of the vehicle which veered off and rolled over several times before stopping.
