Nyeri - A four-year-old girl died after she was hit by a speeding vehicle at Chaka trading centre along Nyeri-Nanyuki road Tuesday morning.
According to eyewitnesses, the girl, who was on her way to school, was trying to cross the busy highway when the bus heading to Isiolo hit her.
The residents immediately blamed the deceased’s death on her parents negligence saying they ought to have escorted her to school.
"Her mother accompanies her to school which is about 500 metres away from the highway daily, but I don't know why she let her go alone today," said an eyewitness.
The body was removed to Nyeri Provincial General Hospital mortuary.
