On Saturday, February 15, a vehicle plunged into the Nairobi River, raising fears of the state of the occupants.

The accident occurred along Outering Road, raising fresh concerns over the accessibility of the road in that area.

Eyewitnesses on the ground suggested that the driver was intoxicated but the photos that surfaced online showed no occupants in the vehicle.

"The incident took place as early as 6.30 a.m. in the morning but nothing has been done to retrieve the car. As of 8:26 p.m, I passed there and it was still under the water," tweeted user Dan Okeo.

"There are two major problems at this particular bridge point. Two huge bumps erected back to back and there are no visible warning signs for the two number. Many accidents have happened on this road," tweeted another user.

Accidents have been on the rise in recent weeks, with authorities pointing out careless driving as one of the main causes. 

On Sunday, December 22, a Subaru Impreza was involved in a horrific accident along Outering Road.

The vehicle ran over a bump and plunged into the Nairobi River.

The river has emerged as a cause of environmental concern over its cleanliness, with Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko initiating a cleaning process in 2019.
