Several people have been injured following multiple vehicles which were involved in an accident along Thika Road in the early hours of Monday, February 17.
The accident involving at least seven cars left several injured as well as a huge traffic snarl-up at the Muthaiga Junction along Thika Road.
At the time of going to press the actual number of casualties had not been confirmed, with rescue efforts currently ongoing.
Eyewitnesses on the ground suggested that the driver was intoxicated but the photos that surfaced online showed no occupants in the vehicle.
“The incident took place as early as 6.30 a.m. in the morning but nothing has been done to retrieve the car. As of 8:26 p.m, I passed there and it was still under the water,” tweeted user Dan Okeo.
“There are two major problems at this particular bridge point. Two huge bumps erected back to back and there are no visible warning signs for the two number. Many accidents have happened on this road,” tweeted another user.
In recent weeks accidents have been on the rise, with authorities pointing out careless driving as one of the main causes.
