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 nation in the past few months.

These accidents, according to National Transport and Safety Authority, have been attributed to the recklessness of drivers and non compliance to traffic rules that has seen over 1500 people lose their lives on the highways since January 2022.
As per the reports from the highway, the bus was attempting to miss a pedestrian when it lost control and overturned on the busy road.
The accident happened at a place known as Mutindwa Bridge earlier on this morning but there were no casualties.
The bus was empty at the time of the accident this morning and the driver was not seriously injured and was able to walk away.
Outering Road leads in the number of pedestrian deaths in Kenya with over 80 people dead since January.
Mtindwa Bridge sees many pedestrians avoiding to use it and instead opt for crossing the road dangerously each day.
Motorists and pedestrians alike have been asked to always be careful on the roads to avoid such scenes that in some cases lead to deaths.
