Along the Mombasa-Nairobi Highway, there was reportedly a fatal car accident that claimed the lives of at least four persons.
It has been reported that a lorry that was transporting sand and a long-distance trailer were involved in the gruesome road accident that occurred at a location known as Kwa DC area in the Mukaa sub-county. Both vehicles collided head-on with each other.
Ali Manzu, an anchor for the news station KTN, reported that there have been four fatalities.
"On the route between Mombasa and Nairobi, in the Kwa DC region of the Mukaa sub-county, there was an accident that claimed the lives of four persons. A trailer and a sand-carrying truck were involved in a head-on collision. Photos are courtesy of, "read the tweet posted by Ali Manzu.
On the other hand, it is not quite obvious what caused the accident.
Along the Mombasa-Nairobi Highway, there have been a significant number of accidents recently, the vast majority of which have resulted in fatalities.
On the same stretch of road a few months ago, a head-on collision between a PSV matatu and a long-distance trailer resulted in at least 20 individuals losing their lives there and there.
According to the reports, the driver of the matatu was attempting to pass other vehicles within the continuous yellow line. On roadways, a continuous yellow line is painted to alert drivers of potential danger zones, such as when they are approaching a bridge or a sharp turn, to name just two examples.
May their souls rest In eternal peace.
