Following a collision between a motorbike and probox at Ndaragu crossroads in Juja, Kiambu County, on Tuesday, two pillion passengers perished and a motorcyclist suffered critical injuries.

According to the police, the probox, which is thought to have been speeding, was traveling from Thika to Nairobi when it crashed head-on with the motorcycle traveling in the opposite direction.

Eyewitnesses claim that when the motorcycle rider attempted to pass another car, he appeared to have underestimated both the space between his motorcycle and the probox as well as the speed of the moving vehicle.

The motorcycle smashed head-on into the probox, killing the two pillion passengers instantly. His mistake would prove fatal.

The deceased were taken to General Kago Morgue for custody and identification while the motorcyclist was rushed to Thika Level V Hospital for treatment.

The motorcycle and probox wreckage were both towed to Juja Police Station for inspection.

Juja Sub-County police commander Phyllis Muthoni commented on the incident and stated that drivers should use caution to avoid such mishaps.
