Road accident in Gilgil

At least eight people were on Friday morning killed in a tragic road accident involving a trailer and a Nissan Matatu near St Mary’s Hospital at Gilgil along the Nairobi- Nakuru highway.

The eight reportedly died on the spot.

Gilgil Sub County police Commander John Onditi confirmed the incident, saying two others were left fatally injured in the accident that occurred around 5 am.

Onditi said the matatu was headed for Nairobi from Nakuru while the trailer was headed in the opposite direction.

“Witnesses say the trailer was overtaking another car when it collided with matatu that was oncoming. We have lost almost all onboard the matatu,” he said.

The Kenya red cross team responded to the scene in conjunction with police officers to attend to the injured passengers.
