[VIDEO] 4 Die As Container Truck Rollover A Tourist Van At Miasenyi Area, Nairobi – Mombasa Highway

Three Belgian tourists and their tour van driver died on Friday, when a trailer rammed into their vehicle at Miasenyi area, Kwale County.

Reports say that the 1pm accident occurred after the driver of the trailer attempted to avoid running over a cow on the Mombasa-Nairobi highway, only to lose control of the vehicle, which overturned before landing on the tour van.

All the victims died on the spot.

 “The trailer driver was heading to Nairobi when he probably lost control. The vehicle then overturned with its container and it fell on the tour van, crashing it. As a result of the impact, the driver and passengers died on the spot,” area police boss Fred Ombaka told reporters.

Ombaka stated that the tourists were from the same family. The bodies have since been moved to Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital Voi Mortuary in Taita Taveta.

The incident comes almost a week after 18 people died on the same road after a matatu collided with a trailer between Taru and Samburu area in Kwale.

The driver of the matatu was trying to overtake, when the vehicle collided head-on with an oncoming trailer.

Police have since cautioned drivers to exercise caution on roads.
