4 dead, several injured in grisly accident

Four people died in a grisly road accident on Friday night, along the Nairobi-Meru Highway.

Reports reaching Pulselive.co.ke indicate that the Friday night accident involved a lorry and a 14 seater Matatu which collided leaving nine people nursing serious injuries.

According to an eyewitness, the driver of the lorry was speeding before he hit the PSV that was transporting passengers from Nairobi.

Maara OCPD Johnston Kabusia who confirmed the incident said that the injured were rushed to Chogoria Mission Hospital where they are recuperating.

Required standards

The accident comes in the wake of efforts by Government to ensure the transport sector is properly regulated and that all public service vehicles match the required standards to operate.

During the festive season, Traffic police had a crackdown on Public Service Vehicles to take rogue operators from the roads.

The operation saw the enforcement of several rules, including the popular Michuki rules to ensure safety in public transport.
