Lorry overturns at Karai shopping centre, Naivasha. / COURTESY

Transport was on Sunday paralysed along the Nairobi- Nakuru Highway after a lorry carrying beer was involved in an accident.

People living around Karai shopping centre scrambled for the alcoholic beverages. The young and old fought for the beer as police officers looked on.

“The driver was trying to avoid hitting an incoming car when the lorry lost control and veered off the road before rolling,” John Mwangi, a witness, told the Star.

“On impact, the beers were thrown out of the lorry leading to the scramble by the members of the public.”
