These accidents can be avoided if only the adherence to traffic rules as well as driving under speeds that are manageable on the highways.
This morning, there has been a very sad and unfortunate incident on the Kitui-Machakos Highway.
According to a report seen by this writer, a grade two pupil has been knocked down by a speeding truck.
An eye witness at the scene says that the speeding Wells Fargo Courier truck hit the child and just sped off.
The body of the child is still lying at the scene as Police have not yet arrived to assess the situation and remove the body.
The child is reported to have died on the spot after the collision with the truck as he was crossing the road.
Proper zebra crossing signs are needed in places where children use them to cross the roads as they head to school every day.
We urge drivers to ensure that they are always careful on the roads to avoid such unfortunate accidents.
