Cases of road accidents are being witnessed each day. In Mombasa road the cases are more common and most fatal. Deaths on this road are going high each day. It is a sad evening after two pedestrians were crushed to death in Sultan Hamud Strech of Mombasa road.
The two were in a group of five, two of whom have been rushed to hospital after sustaining serious injuries. One was able to flee unhurt. According to those who witnessed the sad scene, the accident involved a trailer lorry which lost control after break failure. Attempt by the driver to evade the five who were unaware of what was happening we're futile as the lorry moved with top speed to the road reserve.
The two have died on the spot and their bodies have been collected by the police. Good Samaritans were fast to rush the other two to hospital for quick aid. We wish the two quick recovery. Pedestrians are among the high statistics recorded as deaths from road accidents in Kenya today. Being careful on the roads and especially keeping distance from the roads is essential. The use of earphones while walking on road is highly discouraged as it makes one unaware of any danger.
