A boy of eight years was involved in a road accident this morning as he was on his way to school.
The grade two pupil was knocked down by the motorcycle where he succumbed to his injuries on the spot in the accident that caused a major traffic snarl-up on the Kagio-Kutus road in Kirinyaga County.
Tension and mourning was high from the residents of Kagio together with boy's parents as they alleged that the bodaboda rider was careless on his way.
Some of the witnesses said that the grade two pupil was crossing the road, only to find that he has been knocked down.
However, that motorcyclist explained to the police officers how that incident occurred. He is now in the police camp as he is further explaining how he hurt the boy.
The little boy passed on and the Mwea West sub-county Police Commander Wilson Koskei stated that the rider committed a serious traffic offence and would face the law.
