Four die after matatu collides with lorry in Kibwezi

Four people died Wednesday morning, three of them on the spot, in an accident involving a matatu and a lorry in Wayani Township, near Kibwezi Town, on the Nairobi-Mombasa highway.

A matatu driver and two passengers died on the spot while the fourth person was pronounced dead on arrival at Makindu Sub-County Hospital

The 10-seater matatu was heading to Kibwezi from Makindu while the lorry was heading towards Nairobi when the vehicles collided.

Makindu OCPD Henrietta Wanyama confirmed that two people died on the spot while reliable sources at the Makindu hospital, who did not wish to be named, said that three people had been confirmed dead on arrival and a fourth died while undergoing treatment.

According to witnesses, the speeding matatu attempted to overtake the lorry as another vehicle was approaching, but the lorry driver refused to give way to the van.

“A loud bang drew us to the scene and on arrival, we found that a lorry had hit the matatu,” said John Mutua, a witnesses.
