Accidents on the Kenyan highways have been on the rise in the recent past with the government unsure of what to do in order to mitigate this scourge that has bedeviled our roads in the past few months.

Data from the National Transport and Safety Authority shows that about 1900 people have lost their lives on the highways since the beginning of the year in nasty accidents.

The government has urged motorists to always be careful to avoid such scenes on a daily basis which has brought so much devastation to the people of this country.

This morning, according to reliable reports from Thika Superhighway, there has been a nasty accident on the busy road where several cars rammed into each other.

The accident happened on the Roasters Underpass and this has completely blocked off the highway as per the reports that we have from the scene of the accident.

The accident happened moments ago but no casualties have been reported from the scene of the accident with injuries being rushed to the hospital for treatment.

It's still unclear as to what caused the grisly accident this morning with police already on the site and doing all they can to clear the highway.

A matatu as well as three other vehicles were involved in the accident that happened moments ago on the busy road this morning creating a serious snarlup on the highway heading to Thika.

Motorists have been advised to be extra careful as they approach this section of the highway to ensure that a repeat is not seen on the road.
