Three killed in Kitui road crash


Three people perished in a road crash at Kathivo area near Kabati market along the Kitui- Kanyonyoo-Thika road.

The driver of a 14-seater matatu belonging to Kinathi Sacco, which was heading to Nairobi, lost control of the vehicle and rolled several times after encountering a diversion.

Police officers who visited the accident scene told the Nation that the driver may have decided to take the diversion on the road when he had already passed it resulting in the crash.

A child died on the spot, while the other two victims were pronounced dead upon arrival at Kitui Level Four hospital.
