Two people, a man and a woman, died in separate accidents along the Nairobi-Nakuru highway.
In the first incident a senior Kenya Forest Service officer died after his vehicle collided head on with a canter near Kinale forest on the highway.
The officer is said to have been heading to Nyandarua when the private vehicle he was driving was hit by an overtaking canter killing him on the spot.
A witness Pamela Nyokabi said the driver of the canter was overtaking a fleet of vehicles when he hit the private vehicle resulting in a terrible traffic jam.
“It has become normal for the small lories ferrying vegetables to Nairobi to cause accidents despite numerous warnings from police and National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA)”.
Nyokabi blamed the driver of the canter for careless driving saying he was overtaking dangerously despite poor weather.
“The visibility was poor as the road was foggy and no one understood where he was rushing to causing an unnecessary accident”.
A senior police officer who did not want to be named confirmed the incident saying the decreased was alone when the accident happened.
