Pastor Tom had been serving as an overseer with the reconciliation center in Watamu for years.

According to the deceased's son, Walter Tom, three other people were sitting outside at the time, including his mother, aunt, and cousin when the car struck the hotel.

Walter said their father opened the hotel last year to help cater to his family.

Tom who is currently a student at Godoma technical college is now worried that his education and that of his siblings might come to an end considering that their father was the family's breadwinner.

''I'm not sure what will befall us, the future of our two other siblings is now bleak'' he said.

Officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations and Forensics visited the area and documented the scene.

A postmortem has been conducted on the body at the Malindi Sub-county mortuary pending further investigations.

Police are now investigating the cause of the accident.
