4 Killed, 1 Injured in Gilgil Weighbridge Accident

  • Four people died and one other seriously injured on Sunday morning after a vehicle they were travelling in was involved in a horrific road accident at Gilgil weighbridge.

    The four were said to be in a personal vehicle that was heading to Nairobi when the accident occured.

    Their vehicle rammed into an oncoming trailer as it was speedily overtaking a fleet of vehicles along the highway.

    Ziwani Ward MCA Millicent Wambui Mugadi was the only survivor in the accident and was admitted at the St Mary's Hospital, Gilgil where she is currently receiving treatment.
