One out of five occupants in a saloon car travelling at Kihigo gia Chuma along the Naro Moru-Nanyuki road on Monday survived with serious injuries after a lorry traveling in the opposite direction rammed into the saloon car.
Four of the saloon car passengers died on the spot and the driver of the lorry was nowhere to be found after the tragic accident.
According to an eye witness, the lorry was recklessly at the wrong direction.
Kieni East OCPD Michael Mbaluku said they were investigating the cause of the accident, and also searching for the lorry driver.
“Investigations are ongoing to try and establish what exactly transpired but it is too early to say who was at fault,” the OCPD commented.
