Road Accident

Another Accident Occurs Along Malindi-Mombasa Highway, Same Spot That Claimed Over 15 Lives (Photos)

Kizingo area, near Gede along Malindi-Mombasa highway in Kilifi County is becoming an accident hotspot. Last week the area hit the headlines after a grisly head on collision occurred between a mini bus and Garissa bound Muhsin Bus. The county government of Kilifi lost 6 workers on the spot. They were on board of the Sabaki Shuttles mini bus. These who survived the accident were left with serious injuries and are still in hospital.

Barely a week after this grisly accident, another accident has occurred this very morning. The accident has involved two Nissans which have collided head on. One of the Nissans was headed to Kilifi while the other one was headed to Malindi. One of the Nissans overturned facing sideways. Luckily, many have survived this accident escaping with minor injuries. So far, police have not confirmed any death. Those with serious injuries have been rushed to Malindi District hospital.

The Malindi-Mombasa Highway along Kizingo area is one way. The sides of the tarmac road are very steep. When a driver is looped on the wrong lane, the only option is to get out the road. With the vehicle moving at a high speed, the driver is likely to lose control. Motorist using this route are being cautioned to observe all the traffic rules. Overspeeding should not be condoned. Vehicles without speed governors should be recalled so that we can save lives.
