Those who were injured have been rushed to Chuka County Referral Hospital and PCEA Chogoria Mission Hospital where they are currently receiving treatment. The accident has shocked Kenyans since some of the passengers are still trapped inside.
To make the matter worse, a video has now emerged showing one of the modern Coast Express Bus over speeding on the wrong side. The bus which might not be the one which was involved in the accident was going downhill at a neck-breaking speed and at the same time on the wrong side.
Those who capturing the video were left in surprise with how the driver was driving the vehicle. According to an eyewitness identified as Mr Nicholas Mutegi, he says that bus could have developed break failure before hitting a guardrail and plunged inside river Nithi. He told the press that the bus was going downhill at a very high speed falling inside the water.
