On Saturday night, numerous vehicles were involved in a road collision that injured an unknown number of persons near the Nairobi Expressway Mlolongo toll booth.
The vehicle exiting the expressway was speeding, according to Kenya National Highways Authority, which confirmed the accident.
“The motorist crashed into the Toll Plaza and ran over other vehicles that were being cleared to exit. Consequently, the vehicle knocked one toll booth and injured one toll attendant besides the other motorists,” KeNHA said in a statement.
The Authority further stated that those who were hurt had been taken to the hospital for treatment and were responding well.
The affected exit booth has been closed.
Agnes Makau, the commander of the Athi River base, told NTV that one motorist perished in the collision.
