A fatal road accident has just occurred this evening at Valley road at the CITAM Bridge involving two vehicles which led to the death of traffic police officer according to a Facebook post by blogger Jarunda Jaluth.
“Fatal accident at Valley Road at the CITAM footbridge causing huge snarl up on both sides. One traffic police has been killed by the city shuttle matatu. Avoid Valley road if you can,” the post read. The accident occurred near the Ministry of Defence.
Photos of the scene circulating online indicate that a car was hit by another vehicle with its front part damaged. The body of the police officer lay by the roadside covered with a blanket. Blood stains could also be seen on the road. Rescue operations are underway.
We urge our drivers to always practice safety while on the roads so as to avoid deaths. It is so painful to see an officer die while in the line of duty. May he rest in peace.
