Road Accident

Several Feared Dead as Funeral Bus Collides With Lorry at Maai Mahiu

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 highways.

These accidents, according to the National Transport and Safety Authority, are due to the recklessness and non compliance to traffic rules by most motorists.

The number of those who have died on the roads since January is put at a little over 1500 by the NTSA.

This morning, according to reliable reports from Maai Mahiu, there has been a nasty accident involving two vehicles that have left many dead.

According to the reports, bodies are strewn on the roads and it is not yet ascertained if there are any survivors at the scene of the crash.

The accident has led to a huge gridlock on the busy highway this morning as the accident scene has not been cleared yet.

An eye witness reports that there are bodies strewn on the highway from the accident that happened earlier this morning.

Rescue crews have already arrived at the scene of the accident ready to help where they can in the accident that has shocked many motorists.

The Funeral Bus was headed back to Nairobi when it collided with the sand truck that was headed in the opposite direction at Maai Mahiu.

The vehicles were going at tremendous speeds given the impact and the number of those that have lost their lives.
