Two killed in accident on Kenya’s Nairobi-Nakuru highway

NAIVASHA (Xinhua) -- An upcountry trip for a family ended on a tragic note after the father and his ten year old daughter died in an accident along the Nairobi-Nakuru highway.

During the 3 a.m. accident at Kinungi trading center in Naivasha, four other members of the family including two minors were injured two of them seriously.

The accident occurred after the personal car that was carrying the family rammed head on into an incoming lorry, killing the two on the spot.

Samuel Waweru, Officer Commanding Police Division (OCPD) Naivasha, confirmed the accident, adding that the bodies had been collected and taken to the local mortuary.

According to James Kabono from Naivasha Safety group, the driver of the personal car was to blame for the tragic accident.

“The driver was heading to Western Kenya when he left his lane and rammed head-on into the incoming lorry killing two while four others were seriously injured,” he said.

Kabono said that the injured were rushed to Naivasha sub-county hospital where two were admitted in serious but stable condition.

Meanwhile, tens of motorists were over the weekend arrested in Naivasha for drunk driving along major roads in and around the town.

During the Saturday and Sunday night crackdown, over hundred drivers were forced to spend the night in police cells.

Drama unfolded during the exercise as some drivers tried to flee on foot from the officers only to collapse a few meters away due to the effects of the liquor.

The OCPD said that the crackdown targeting drunk drivers would continue across the roads during the festive season.

“We are putting on notice those drivers who are driving while drunk that we are keenly monitoring them and they face arrest,” he said.
