A terrible road accident has occurred along Kagundo road. The incident involved a City Shuttle bus and a personal saloon car.
The bus was labeled as 643.
The City Shuttle rammed into the personal vehicle at Sir Henry along the busy road. The accident happened at around midday.
Several casualties from the scene were rushed to the nearest hospital.
According to eyewitnesses, the saloon car was headed to Kamulu direction while the bus was headed in the opposite direction. It then collided with the PSV bus head-on.
The pictures indicate the bus during the collision crushed the saloon car and eventually got on top of it.
No casualty has been reported so far from the accident.
The City Shuttle seemed to be on high speed before it rammed into the oncoming private vehicle.
Motorists using the route are urged to be extra careful. The road has claimed many lives due to mostly disobedience of traffic rules.
The accident may be an indication of the state of roads in the country. Recently, Kasarani residents took to the streets demonstrating the poor state of roads in the area.
It was not until Nairobi senator Johnson Sakaja calmed the crowds that normalcy returned. He promised them road contractors will attend to the road as soon as possible.
Ruai area is part of the Kasarani constituency.
PSV new rules
This horrific accident comes barely a day after tough measures were set up for PSVs in a bid to curb the Coronavirus.
According to health CS Mutahi Kagwe, all PSVs should not exceed 60% of total passenger capacity. Consequently, fourteen seater matatus should carry a maximum of eight passengers on board.
This move is in a bid to curb the spread of the deadly coronavirus which has shaken all corners of the earth.
In addition, PSVs were instructed to sanitize their passengers before boarding.
