Matatu rams into five cars in mid-morning CBD accident – PHOTOS


Motorists along Kenyatta Avenue were greatly inconvenienced on Thursday mid-morning after a Metro Shuttle bus ploughed into five other vehicles.

The bus which was heading towards the Central Business District (CBD) hit the other cars, including four personnel and another matatu belonging to City Shuttle as they waited for the lights to turn.

There were however no major injuries were reported in the accident.

The accident caused a traffic snarl up with other motorists forced to use alternative route to access the CBD.

The police had hectic time trying to control traffic, but were able to ease traffic within an hour.

Curiously, it’s the same spot that an accident happened earlier this year involving a 56 matatu that left 14 people injured.
