Several people were left nursing serious injuries after a van they were travelling in fell off from Nairobi’s museum hill overpass.
Eye witnesses revealed that the speeding van rammed into guard rails before falling off from the overpass along Waiyaki way at the exit of Prof Wangari Maathai road (formerly Forest Road) and rammed onto another matatu on the road below.
Several people were reportedly trapped in the two vehicles with emergency response teams coordinating rescue efforts.
The number of casualties had not been confirmed by the time of going to press.
Below are photos of the scene of the accident which caused a huge traffic snarl up along the busy road.
