The accident caused a major traffic snarl-up on the road, with traffic police officers trying all their efforts to clear the jam.

According to eyewitnesses, the salon car was overlapping when it came head on with a pickup seeking to join the road from an intersecting lane.
Accidents have been very rampant along Thika town roads with members of the public blaming it on the deplorable state of the roads and traffic jams that force frustrated motorists to overlap.
