Weekend accidents claims two
14 January 2013, 14:43
A 66 year-old man was on Sunday knocked to death by a hit and run vehicle along the Nyahururu Nakuru road.
Confirming the incident, Nyandarua North OCPD Benjamin Onsongo said that the speeding motorist hit the man from behind and killed him on the spot.
Police launched a manhunt for the reckless driver.
The 7:50 PM incident happened only a day after another middle aged man died in a grisly accident along the Nyahururu-Rumuruti road.
The accident happened in the wee hours of the morning. The driver of the vehicle hit an electricity post before nose diving and killed him on the spot.
The driver was however slightly injured and the other passenger in the back seat escaping with minor injuries.
The bodies of the two victims from the separate accidents are being preserved at the Nyahururu District Hospital.
