The accident occurred when a saloon car, which was heading towards Kilifi collided with a trailer heading to Mombasa from Kaloleni.

Two buses and another lorry were also involved in the accident, leading to a huge traffic snarl-up that lasted for over three hours.

An eye witness present at the crash claimed many accidents had occurred in the area in recent times due to lack of speed bumps and uncleared road bushes.
