Nairobi - A police officer was killed in a hit and run accident along Mombasa Road.

The Daily Nation reports that the incident took place on Sunday night as the officer was clearing the road to pave way for the return of President Uhuru Kenyatta from Ethiopia.

The officer, identified as Corporal Levi Njonjo died a few minutes after the accident. He was manning the road in the company of Embakasi OCPD Apollo Onyonyi, OCS Victor Nyongesa and three other officers near a diversion to the airport a few minutes before midnight.

The Star reports that the driver was moving extremely fast when the accident took place.

" A speeding Toyota Wish driven by a man approached and did not stop. We jumped off the road but one of the officers was hit,” Onyonyi said.

Nairobi Traffic Commandant Edward Mwamburi said the driver of the car would be charged after investigations into the crash are completed.

The driver was arrested and taken to the Embakasi Police Station. His vehicle was also detained at the station.
