Nyeri - One person died and 15 others injured following a road accident along the Nyeri–Nanyuki road over the weekend.
The accident that occurred near Chaka trading centre involved a personal car and a 14-seater Matatu.
About 15 passengers were taken to Mathari Mission Hospital, Nyeri where one of them was pronounced dead on arrival.
While confirming the accident, area police boss Ancient Kaloki said the car burst its front tyre and lost control causing an on-coming Matatu to swerve and roll over while trying to avoid a head-on collision.
Kaloki said there had been no contact between the two vehicles and they merely veered off the road and rolled separately.
The personal car, with the driver only, was smashed in the front part including its windscreen while the Matatu lay upside down with all the windows shattered, about fifty meters away.
