Alarm over increase in accidents

On 11 July 2019, three people died after a motorcycle collided with a car along the Embu-Makutano road in Kirinyaga County.

The crash happened when the car, which was heading towards Ngurubani from Embu, hit the motorcycle that was ferrying two passengers, killing the rider and his passengers instantly.

Witnesses recounted that the driver of the car was overtaking another vehicle when he crashed into the motorcycle which was coming from the opposite direction, killing the three on the spot.
