11 people have so far been confirmed dead and several others injured following a road accident along Thika-Garisa highway yesterday evening.
The accident that involved a canter and a matatu from Kanatwa Sacco was coming from Thika and the canter coming from the opposite direction.
The 8.00pm accident happened after both vehicles collided head on as the matatu was overtaking.
Thika east OCPD Julius Chyombole said so far those are the bodies collected from the scene and were taken to General Kago Funeral Home Thika while those injured were taken to Thika level 5 hospital.
He further said that the number of fatalities could change as some of those rushed to hospital had serious injuries.
Police are reported to be busy clearing the scene and this has caused traffic congestion along the busy highway.
Police are also trying to establish how many occupants were in both vehicles as the matatu is said to have been overloaded.
