One Police Officer Killed, Another Injured in A Fatal Accident Along Mombasa Road

Kenyan roads have been described as exceptionally dangerous for vulnerable users like children, out of whom a significant number of them are among those killed and injured.

Several people are feared dead after a 14-seater-matatu belonging to Makos Sacco was involved in a fatal crash at Maanzoni, Mombasa Road.

Reports indicate that one person died on the spot.

While confirming the accident, Machakos Deputy County Commissioner David Rotich said that several other passengers had been rushed to the Machakos Level 5 Hospital for treatment.

"We have lost one of our officers and another has been rushed to hospital," Rotich said.

The officer's body has been moved to Montezuma funeral home in Nairobi.

The wreckage of the matatu has been towed to a nearby Police station.

According to the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA), about two thousand people have died on Kenyan roads since January this year. Pedestrians account for the highest number of fatalities.
