Several injured in Thika Superhighway road accident
Several people were on Monday afternoon injured after a Lopha Sacco minibus overturned on Thika Superhighway.
Nairobi Traffic commandant Leonard Katana said the driver lost control of the vehicle and it rolled over.
“I urge motorists to drive at a moderate speed as even if there is any obstruction on the road when one is driving at a moderate speed they will not lose control of the vehicle,” said Mr Katana.
The minibus which plies Nairobi-Kenyatta University route was past Muthaiga when the incident occurred.
Those who were injured were taken to different hospitals near the scene and police are yet to ascertain the total number.
Mr Katana said traffic officers were controlling traffic along the superhighway and apart from that accident and slow traffic near GSU and Roasters there were no delays.
The accident comes during a week when many people are travelling to different destinations in the country for Christmas and New Year holidays.
