A trailer rammed several cars along Mahi Mahiu-Limuru escapement injuring several people.
Reports indicated that several people are in critical condition after the trailer lost control on Thursday, November 28th, and rammed eight other vehicles along the Maai Mahiu-Limuru escarpment.
According to The Standard, the accident resulted after truck that was headed downhill faced mechanical challenges before the driver lost control and rammed into the oncoming vehicles.
The trailer finally crushed next to the Maai Mahiu Catholic Church also known as the ‘Travellers’ Church on the outskirts of Maai Mahiu town.
Police then confirmed the accident causing major gridlock on the road what forced motorists to use alternative routes.
Among the eight vehicles that the truck rammed into included six lorries and two personal vehicles.
The accident left hundreds of motorists stranded as the road was blocked with police struggling to remove the wreckage from the road and ditches.
Last week another accident occurred after a matatu driver rubbed Kenyans the wrong way when photos were circulated online showing him carelessly overtaking on the slopes of the escarpment road.
