Woman injured after matatu rams into car in CBD – PHOTOS & VIDEO
A woman was seriously injured on Wednesday morning after a matatu driver jumped traffic lights and hit their car along Kenyatta Avenue.
The mid-morning accident occurred at the junction of Wabera Street and Kenyatta Avenue.
Eyewitnesses said the car was joining Kenyatta Avenue from Wabera Street when it was hit by the Tawala Sacco minibus whose driver was jumping the lights.
The woman, who was on the car’s front seat, was severely injured during the accident.
Bodaboda riders stationed at the junction frantically yanked the car’s door to rescue the woman who was trapped in the car.
With an ambulance not forthcoming, the quick thinking riders moved in to rescue the woman who was in dire pain.
“These matatus flout traffic lights and they don’t care about other motorists on the road. The small vehicle was on the right and it was hit as it crossed Kenyatta Avenue by the matatu,” said an eyewitness.
