Kibwezi sub-county police commander Ben Chagulo said they had received information on the accident and they were in the process of gathering more before moving to the scene.

By the time of going to press, the body was still lying at the scene while the injured had been rushed to Kibwezi sub-county hospital.

Earlier this month, seven people died on the spot while four others were hospitalised following another fatal accident on the same road.

They were later reported to be from a church in Nairobi’s Kayole area.

A section of the road which is under construction has loose chippings hence the self-involving accidents.
