2 Die, 6 Seriously Injured On a Grissy Road Accident At Nithi Bridge, Tharaka Nithi County

An accident that occurred on Sunday has claimed the life of two people, while leaving others seriously injured.

According to the Daily Nation, two people died while six others were seriously injured after a 14 -seater matatu rolled several times on Sunday at the notorious Nithi bridge on the Meru- Embu highway.

Reports indicate that the vehicle belonging to Ungwana Sacco was coming from Meru towards Embu when the driver lost its control and it rolled several times before landing in a ditch, a few meters from the bridge.

The injured were rushed to Chuka County Referral Hospital while the bodies of those who died were taken to the hospital's mortuary.

The person who witnessed the incident said that the vehicle might have developed a mechanical problem resulting to the accident.

"The vehicle's brakes could have failed because it was on very high speed when it rolled," said James Kimathi, one of the eye witnesses.

Nithi bridge is one of the black spots within the country where accidents occur on several occasions.
