According to Pwani University's Deputy Vice Chancellor, James Kahindi, the students were on their way to the Chepkoilel campus for a national sports event.

They left in two buses with 120 students, four drivers, and one sports officer. Unfortunately, one of the buses was involved in an accident on the Naivasha-Nakuru highway, resulting in injuries and fatalities.

The chief security officer was dispatched to the scene to gather more information, as the university is based in Kilifi.
