At least twelve people were killed in a road collision involving a passenger shuttle and a trailer in Voi on the Nairobi-Mombasa highway on Thursday.

A shuttle owned by Genesis, a Public Service Transport business, collided with a trailer in the Ikanga region of Voi, Taita-Taveta County.

Several people were ejected from the vehicle and were scattered over the road as a result of the crash.

Confirming the incident, Voi OCPD Bernstein Shari revealed that the shuttle, which was traveling from Nairobi to Mombasa, was unable to escape the trailer moving in the opposite direction.

As a result of the collision, four individuals were rescued from the mayhem and immediately brought to Moi Referral Hospital in Voi.

“Responding to a grisly road accident in Ndii, Voi County, involving a head-on collision between a Matatu and a lorry,” read part of a statement issued by Emergency Medical Services. 

“We are working alongside the Kenya Police and well-wishers, we are swiftly evacuating the critically injured to the hospital,” the statement further read. 

This accident revealed Kenya’s precarious road conditions.
