Six people have died in an accident including a 14-seater matatu and a canter along Nairobi-Nakuru highway in Kinugi, and at least 10 injured.
According to witnesses to the Saturday evening accident, the 2NK matatu driver tried to overtake a convoy that was ahead of him when he collided with the lorry head-on.
“The matatu driver headed towards Nairobi swerved to the right, crashing into a lorry coming from the opposite direction,” said an eye witness as quoted by the Nation.
Naivasha Sub-County Deputy Police Commander John Kwasa confirmed that five people, including the lorry driver died on the spot.
“The matatu driver died while being rushed to the Naivasha-based healthy facility. Initial investigations indicate the matatu driver was at fault, occasioning the accident,” added Mr Kwasa.
The Kinungi stretch has been described as a blackspot.
