Pedestrians have also been caught in the middle of all this melee witnessed on the highways and many a lives have been lost through vehicles that were driven carelessly.
This evening, we have just received reports of a body that is lying in the middle of the highway next to Thika Institute of Business Studies.
The body, is said to have been knocked down by a vehicle moments ago that fled the scene of the accident.
The person is said to be dead but police have already responded and they are on the scene directing traffic.
The body has not yet been moved as police do their assessment before it can be moved to the mortuary.
Pedestrians have been urged to be careful so as to avoid these accidents that lead to loss of lives.
