Three people died on the spot following a grisly road accident after a 14-seater matatu rammed into a lorry in Murang'a County.
The accident that occurred in the morning hours of Saturday, January 28, involved a matatu that was trying to overtake the lorry but unfortunately crashed.
According to reports, the matatu was ferrying muguka when the accident happened along the Kambiti kwa Muthike area in Murang'a County.
"It is sad to lose three lives like this because it would have been avoided," Sikika Road Safety lamented on Saturday, January 28.The wreckage of an accident in the Kambiti kwa Muthike area on Saturday, January 28, 2023Sikika Road Safety
From the photos shared online, the matatu was completely squashed due to the impact of the collision.
Additionally, the muguka leaves were seen scattered on the seats and the floor of the vehicle as well as blood stains on both vehicles.
However, it was not disclosed how many people were in the matatu and the lorry itself.
On Saturday, January 21, an accident involving a lorry and a personal service vehicle killed several passengers. This accident occurred in the Makuyu Kambiti area along the Kenol-Marua highway.
According to police reports, those severely injured were rushed to nearby hospitals for medical attention as the bodies were taken to the morgue.
Motorists were urged to exercise caution while on the road to reduce the number of casualties.
Data released by the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) in December 2022, reported that overtaking improperly was among the leading cause of road accidents.
