On August 2, a twitter user by the name Faith Kanja shared shocking footage of two drivers racing along Mombasa Road, ignorant of the risks they were posing to other road users.  In the video, two BMWs, one registration KBS 478 are seen speeding while dangerously overtaking with one of them almost hitting a motorcyclist. Not long after, the footage depicts the two vehicles had crashed by the side of the road.

“Came across some fools on Mombasa road today! Just grateful to have escaped their idiocy and recklessness,” Faith captioned the video.

According to Faith, the speeding drivers crashed after reaching a diversion and hitting barriers. Footage of the crash shows the black BMW with a wrecked bumper while the silver car had damage to the front.  

“Are you all okay?” one of the motorcyclists is heard inquiring from the cars’ occupants to which they respond: “we’re very okay.” He then proceeds to warn them about their speeding. At one point, one of the occupants who is seemingly drunk emerges with a cup and bottle of alcohol in hand. After the shocking footage went viral, twitter ‘investigators’ soon traced the cars parked at an estate in Athi River with Faith saying she hopes they learned their lesson.
