7 injured as one accident leads to another in Kinungi
Seven people were seriously injured in two separate accidents on Friday night in Kinungi, Naivasha.
The first accident involved a lorry that was carrying sand, a Nissan car that was ferrying passengers and three other vehicles that were from a burial service in Elburgon.
In the second incident that also occurred in Kinungi, a bus belonging to Easy Coach Ltd hit a personal vehicle that was heading to Nakuru.
The driver of the bus was apparently trying to avoid hitting the personal vehicle but still did.
Three Nissan cars whose drivers had turned back to check on their counterpart who was in the first car were also hit in the process.
They had cut short their journey to Thika because they heard that one of the cars in their convoy had collided with a lorry.
The vehicles had been parked by the side of the road when the bus hit them.
Three passengers who were still inside the vehicles suffered serious injuries while one of the drivers was hurt in the head.
They were rushed to the Naivasha Subcounty Hospital.
The lorry driver fled the scene after the accident and police are said to be searching for him.
