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 since January 2022.
These accidents, have been due to recklessness and non compliance to traffic rules given that a bus coming from a funeral in Kisii collided head on with a lorry a few days ago at Maai Mahiu leaving eight dead.
The bus is said to have been headed to Garissa when the accident happened and the vehicle was coming from Nairobi when the accident happened.
According to the reports from the highway this evening, the injured in the accident have been rushed to Matuu Level 4 Hospital with serious injuries.
It's unclear as to what caused the accident that happened moments ago on the busy highway this evening leaving the people injured.
No fatalities have been reported from the accident that happened moments ago on the busy highway.
Motorists have been advised to be extra careful on the road this evening but police have been able to clear the wreckage from the scene of the accident.
