Three University Students Die in Grisly Matatu Accident in Nakuru City

Accidents on the Kenyan highways have been on the rise with the government urging motorists to always be careful to avoid such scenes on the roads.

These accidents, are said to have been caused by recklessness as well as non compliance to traffic rules on the roads.

This afternoon, tragedy has struck in the City of Nakuru after a matatu was involved in a grisly accident that has left three people dead on the scene.

The three who have lost their lives are said to be students of the Rift Valley Institute of Agriculture as per the reports that we have with us this afternoon.

The three were travelling in the matatu that was involved in an accident earlier on this morning at the Ngata Bridge.

14 passengers are said to have been injured after a lorry rammed the matatu that they were traveling in at the Ngata area on Nakuru-Eldoret Highway.

The three bodies were evacuated to the mortuary as the injured were rushed to the hospital as per the reports that we have with us this evening.

Motorists are advised to be extra careful on the roads to avoid such accidents heading into the festive season.
