Two people have died as scores others were left injured following a grisly road accident at Muguga area on the Nairobi-Nakuru highway on Friday night.

A priest and his wife reportedly died on the spot after a trailer that experienced brake failure rammed their car in the crash where 20 vehicles were involved, including a school bus with 44 students onboard.

Among the injured were two students from the Twilight Secondary School in Kayole, Nairobi County; they're currently receiving treatment at PCEA Kikuyu Hospital.

Kikuyu sub-county Police Commander Ronald Kirui confirmed the incident saying investigations have commenced, roping in two truck drivers.

He called upon drivers to maintain driving discipline to avoid losing innocent people on the roads.

Residents have also urged the relevant authorities led by KeNHA to steadfast completion of the road where service lanes will be constructed to avert more loss of lives.
