Overtaking

Peter Mudaki, a witness, said the van collided head-on with a trailer as the driver attempted to overtake a number of vehicles at high speed.

“Just before the bridge, the driver of the Nissan overtook a matatu. He then overtook a trailer and as he attempted to overtake the second trailer, he collided head on with an oncoming one," he said.

The accident comes days after a similar accident occurred in Kirinyaga County after a pick-up collided with a school bus.
