Tharaka Nithi: 3 Injured As Campaign Vehicle Hits Rock And Rolls

Three people were on Monday evening injured after a vehicle belonging to Tharaka Nithi Deputy Governor Nyamu Kagwima hit a rock and overturned in Karuguyuni, Tharaka constituency.

According to eyewitnesses, the driver of the vehicle, which was mounted with a public address system, veered off the road and hit a rock as he was driving down a slope.

Mr Kagwima’s son, Brendan Nyamu, told the Nation that the vehicle’s brakes failed and the driver could not control it because it was on a slope.

He said the three occupants were rushed to Chiakariga dispensary by villagers before they were transferred to Marimanti Sub-County Hospital.

Mr Nyamu said the driver and one of the other occupants were treated and discharged while the other person was admitted with a head injury.
