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.
Makueni County Police Commander Joseph Ole Naipeiyan confirmed that two people died on the spot while two others succumbed to their injuries at a nearby hospital.
“A driver pulled off his lane and tried to overtake a fleet of other motor vehicles. Unfortunately, the two vehicles collided and as a result, two people, a driver and his passenger died on the spot,” Naipeiyan reported.
