Four people have died after their vehicles got involved in a ghastly road accident at Kavati stage, few kilometres from Sultan-Hamud Town, along Mombasa-Nairobi highway.
The two vehicles involved in the Sunday night crash were heading to opposite directions. The car that was heading to Nairobi had tried to overtake a fleet of other vehicles before colliding head-on with an oncoming car, a Toyota Premio that was heading to Mombasa.
