Thika Road traffic police officer Oscar Kipchumba confirmed the accident and said the accident occurred when a Nissan which was heading towards Thika collided with a car heading to Nairobi town from Githurai 45.
One lorry and another pick-up were also involved in the Thursday morning accident, resulting into a huge traffic build up that lasted for over one hour.
"Five people sustained severe injuries and were admitted at Ruaraka Uhai Neema hospital for emergency treatment," said Oscar.

The two were heading to Embakasi East estate from Ruaka when the accident happened.
The accident is still under police investigations with the two motorvehicle wreckages, Nissan and a probox waiting police inspection.
