A woman was killed and 11 others injured when a matatu rammed into several vehicles at Githurai 45, Nairobi on Wednesday morning.

The driver of the 14-seater matatu lost control hitting the vehicles that were ahead of it, said Githurai AP inspector Elijah Kimwele.

The injured were taken to St John’s Hospital, he said at the scene on Wednesday.

In a separate accident at Migaa in Salgaa, Nakuru on Tuesday night, two people died following a head-on collision.

It is suspected that the diver of a lorry heading from Eldoret lost control after his brakes failed, hitting a Toyota Prado at about midnight, police said.

The bodies were taken to Nakuru County Mortuary and the wreckage towed to Salgaa Traffic Police Base, County police commander Koki Mwanga told KNA on phone.
