Accident along Mombasa highway leaves 8 dead, several others in critical condition

Several others were rushed to hospital in critical condition following the 2:30 am accident which occurred at Mumbi area, Machakos county.

The accident happened when a matatu heading to Nairobi from Loitoktok rammed into a stationary trailer parked by the roadside, killing 6 people on the spot.

The driver of the matatu is among those who died on the spot while two others succumbed to injuries in hospital.

Police officers and members of the public rushed to the scene to coordinate rescue efforts.

The heavy rains experienced across different parts of the country reduce visibility and make roads slippery.
