Kikuyu - Several people were injured when a lorry rammed into 14 vehicles along the Nairobi-Nakuru road.
Kikuyu OCPD, Mutume Maweo, said the lorry rammed into the vehicles that had slowed down due to an accident that had been caused by three vehicles.
He said police are searching for the driver of the lorry who went missing after the accident, Daily Nation reports.
The government has been on the front-line to curb road accidents that have turned out to be a menace in the country.
It imposed a night travel ban on all Public Service Vehicles (PSV) last month, a move that was not well received by bus owners, who wanted to make huge profits during the festive season.
Their case against the ban is still pending in court.
It is estimated that close to 3,000 people die on the roads per year.
