Four family members die while taking girl back to school

02 September 2015, 12:53 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Four family members have died after the vehicle they were traveling from Nairobi to Kirinyaga overturned and rolled several times at Nyangati area along Mwea-Kirinyaga-Embu road.

The vehicle, a Toyota Wish, overturned as the driver swerved to avoid a head on collision with an oncoming lorry.

Area OCPD, Titus Yoma said the family was escorting their daughter to a secondary school in Embu for third term.

Yoma said two people died on the spot while two others passed on at Kimbimbi hospital where they had been rushed for treatment.

Those who perished in the horrible accident included 11 and 12-year-old brothers, the mother and an uncle who was driving the vehicle.

The OCPD said the father, a two-year-old child and her 19-year-old daughter, whom they were taking to school, survived and were admitted to Kimbimbi sub-county hospital.

Yoma advised motorists plying along the road to exercise care as the area has become a black spot, claiming many lives in the process.

Few months ago a family traveling from Meru plunged into river Nyamidi which took police and members of the public several weeks to recover the bodies from the river.
