    Witness Describes the Final Seconds of an Accident on the Eastern Bypass 

    Published on

    A witness described the events just before the crash that involved three vehicles on the Eastern Bypass in Nairobi County, not far from the Kamakis settlement.

    One of the first responders, a Boda Boda operator, told the media that he had just dropped off a passenger in the area.

    The operator was picking up another passenger when he saw a speeding Prado rear-end a tuk-tuk, which then crashed with a parked matatu.

    An eyewitness recounts, “I had just dropped off a client in the area and was on my way to pick up another customer when I heard a loud blast.”

    “When I looked back, I saw the tuk-tuk I’d left at the stage picking up passengers and Prado had overturned,” he recalled.

    He confirmed that the tuk-tuk had been severely damaged and that the Prado had flipped over and been left on the side of the road.

    Witnesses said the Prado’s driver was drunk and so responsible for the collision. The tuk-tuk driver, a woman, and her 11-year-old kid were among the 6 casualties.

    Airbags saved the intoxicated driver’s life. Cops who hurried to the scene rescued the driver from furious witnesses.

    Residents requested the Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) to construct bumps along the Eastern bypass to avoid additional accidents.
