Over 4400 Kenyans have lost their lives on the roads since the start of the year. according to the Transportation Cabinet Secretary Kipchumba Murkomen.
Recklessness as well as non compliance to traffic rules have been the main causes of accidents on the roads in the past few years.
This evening, according to the available reliable reports that we have with us from Kiambu Road this evening, there has been a nasty accident involving a Subaru.
An eye witness at the scene has reported that a Subaru SJ5 was trying to overtake a truck before it was forced off the road.
The driver of the Subaru lost control and ended up in a ditch by the side of the road as per the reports that we have with us.
The accident has happened right outside the Quickmart Supermarket along Kiambu Road this evening as per the reports available.
The state of the driver of the Subaru is unknown but it appears he might have suffered very serious injuries.
