According to eyewitnesses, the matatu which was over speeding tried to overtake the lorry, while an oncoming vehicle emerged forcing it to retreat and hit the lorry from behind.

The Friday afternoon accident caused a huge traffic jam along the busy road as motorists were forced to use alternative routes.

The two vehicles were towed to the Machakos Police Station. Investigations into the cause of the accident are ongoing.
