An accident along Mombasa road in the morning has left a person trapped in the wreckage and others nursing injuries.
A Rembo Shuttle Sacco matatu which was enroute to Nairobi from Kitengela attempted to precariously go past another vehicle, registered under the same Sacco, only to crash into a lorry that was transporting sand. This led to a heavy traffic snarl-up around the Athi River turn-off.
A female passenger who was sitting in the driver’s cabin had her legs trapped in the wreckage following the collision and was only freed an hour after the incident following concerted efforts by police and first responders on the scene.
The victims have since been rushed to Shalom Hospital for treatment while the vehicle has been towed to Athi River Police Station.
