The vehicle, Reg. KAX 475B, had sunk six metres deep.

Earlier, the body of the driver, John Mutinda, was also retrieved and taken to the Jocham Hospital Mortuary.

Benedict Kieti, a family member, said they had received news about the accident in the morning but were yet to see the body.

According to the Kenya Ferry Services, the incident occurred at 4.20am on the mainland side.

It is reported that the motorist speeded towards the ramps and ignored calls to slow down.
