Nyeri - A 46-year-old man died on Monday after he was hit by an unidentified vehicle along the Nyeri - Nyahururu road.
Nyahururu police boss, Benjamin Osongo, said that John Kimani succumbed to the injuries he sustained after he was hit by a vehicle that later escaped to an unknown destination.
He suspected that the deceased was walking along the highway on wee hours of Monday night when the accident occurred.
