According to residents, the accident was linked to the dusk till dawn curfew instituted by President Uhuru Kenyatta to curb the spread of Coronavirus.

Ultimately, the evening rush by motorists to get home before curfew has led to confusion and in the process accidents increased.

For instance, in an incident in April, a police constable was run over by a speeding car at the Salgaa roadblock.

Police reports indicated that the driver was trying to beat curfew when the accident happened.
