Road Accident

Two Bodies Taken to Chuka Mortuary as PSV Vehicle Rolls Several Times Before Landing in a Ditch

Six people are currently being treated at Chuka County Referral Hospital after the vehicle they were travelling in was involved in a serious road accident along Meru-Embu highway, just few meters from Nithi bridge considered as the black spot in the region. Two people allegedly died on the spot and their bodies have since been taken to the hospital's mortuary awaiting postmortem.


According to the source on the ground, the accident occurred when the driver of the matatu belonging to Ungwana Sacco lost control of the vehicle, veered off the road and rolled several times before landing in a ditch.

One of the eyewitness who recounted the last moments before the accident told Ntv journalist that, from the look of things, the driver was in a supersonic speed before he lost control of the vehicle.

Nithi bridge has been one of the notorious spots which has over the past days recorded high number of accidents. Drivers have been asked to religiously exercise caution while approaching the bridge.
