One person is reported to have died following a road accident that involved multiple vehicles at the Nairobi Expressway, Mlolongo toll station, on Saturday night.
Kenya National Highways Authority confirmed the accident.
The Authority said a vehicle exiting the expressway was being driven at high speed leading to the accident.
“The motorist crashed into the Toll Plaza and ran over other vehicles that were being cleared to exit. Consequently, the vehicle knocked one toll booth and injured one toll attendant besides the other motorists,” KeNHA said in a statement.
Athi River base commander Agnes Makau said that one motorist died as a result of the accident.
KeNHA added that those injured have been rushed to the hospital for medical attention and are responding to treatment.
“The Nairobi Expressway is committed to providing a safe and reliable toll road service and would wish to assure the public that they are putting measures in place to avert such unfortunate incidents from occurring,” KeNHA noted.
“Motorists are advised to avoid overspeeding and be cautious while on the road.”
The affected exit booth has been closed.
