A numbers of passengers were trapped inside the bus which overturned and caught fire after the accident near I&M Building.

The Nairobi accident came just hours after various incidences were reported on Tuesday that left one person dead and 68 others injured in three separate road accidents in Machakos and Mwingi.

The fatal accident where 12 people were injured occurred at Kaviti plains on Mombasa road when a matatu from Voi rammed a stationary truck.

The two other accidents occurred in Mwingi and Maanzoni where 56 people were injured when two mini buses overturned.
