One person killed, 29 injured in grisly Embu accident

One person has been confirmed dead following an accident involving two matatus at Rupingazi bridge on the Embu-Meru highway.

Embu County Commisioner Abdullahi Galgalo said three people are in critical condition while 26 others sustained seriously injuries.

They are currently receiving treatment at Embu Level Five Hospital.

According to Galgalo, the two 14-seater matatus were headed in opposite directions when the Embu accident occurred.

One was coming from Nairobi and other was headed to the capital city.

“We urge our drivers to exercise caution especially as we approach the Christmas season. We will also ensure that the police ensure that all traffic rules are observed to the letter,” said Galgallo.

The cause of the accident is yet been established even as police continue with investigations.
