Road Accident

JUST IN: Several Feared Dead After Matatu Heading to Meru From Nairobi Involved in Grisly Accident

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.

The government has always urged motorists to be extra careful to avoid these accidents that have led to countless lives being lost on the roads.

Matatu accidents have especially claimed the lives of many Kenyans in the past few months with the National Transport and Safety Authority placing the numbers of those killed at a little over 2000 since January.

This morning, according to reliable reports from the Nairobi to Meru Highway, there has been a nasty accident that has led to several lives being lost.

The accident involved a Matatu from the Meru Nissan Sacco a few moments ago this morning according to the reports that we have.

The vehicle is said to have been on its way from Nairobi to Meru when it was involved in the nasty road accident this morning.

The accident happened near the infamous Thuci River black spot on the busy Embu to Meru Highway this morning.

The cause of the accident has not yet been established but police as well as first responders were able to arrive at the scene and get the injured to safety.

Motorists have been urged to be extra careful on the roads to avoid such accidents with the government banning matatus from the Expressway because of recklessness that has been observed within the industry for a while now.
