Three killed in grisly car accident in Kibwezi
Three people were killed after a car collided with a trailer at Manyanya area in Kibwezi, Makueni county, police said.
The accident involved a Nissan Juke which was heading to Mombasa from Nairobi and a trailer from the opposite direction.
“The driver of the personal car lost control and collided head on with the trailer killing three occupants,” Makueni police boss Joseph Ole Napeiyan said.
The accident occurred at around 5am on Sunday at Manyanya area.
The three bodies have been taken to Makindu Hospital and the vehicles towed to Makindu Police Station.
In January last year, one person died and 5 others were seriously injured following a car accident at Kisayani on the Kibwezi-Kitui Road.
The Toyota Voxy vehicle that was headed to Kibwezi from Kitui had a tyre burst.
The driver lost control causing the vehicle to veer off the road and roll several times.
One of the passengers died instantly while another sustained serious head injuries; four others were slightly hurt.
