High speed cruising accident claims two lives along Mombasa road
Two people lost their lives on Saturday night in a suspected speeding road crash outside a city hotel along Mombasa Road.
According to witnesses, the 11pm crash happened at Hilton Garden Inn Hotel. A private car is suspected to have hit a boda boda rider before it rolled killing two occupants on the spot while a third passenger was rushed to hospital in critical condition.
An eyewitness who was among the first at the scene described and shared a clip he captured with his dashboard camera showing the car speeding on the highway near Imara Daima just moments before the accident.
“These fellows passed me at lightning speed (black car in this dashcam) at Total Imara. I even had to create way. Sad I was first on the scene,” the witness said.
According to the witness, the driver of the Audi fled the accident scene on foot.
