City Shuttle bus overturns near Mutindwa

Business along Outer Ring Road was brought to a standstill when a City Shuttle bus veered off the road and overturned near the Mutindwa stage in a midday incident.

No fatalities were reported and the number of casualties was not immediately ascertained as they were rushed to Kenyatta and Mama Lucy Kibaki Kibaki hospitals.

According to Buruburu Divisional Traffic Officer Isaac Sang the bus was attempting to overtake when its driver saw an oncoming vehicle from the opposite direction.

“On spotting the vehicle, the driver tried to swerve back to the traffic flow and that is when he hit a pickup that was parked by the roadside,” he said.

The accident occurred some 100 metres from where the Mutindwa train crash happened in October last year.
