  • A Nanyuki-bound train rammed into a soda truck at a level crossing in Karatina town on Wednesday, September 22.

    Youth and passers-by seized the moment and made away with crates of sodas as others watched in disbelief.

    By the time of going to press, it had not been established whether there were any injuries and police officers were not at the scene.

    The cause of the accident had also not been established. It is not the first time that a train in the route is being involved in an accident.

    In June 2021, a train travelling from Nanyuki to Nairobi caught fire mid-journey at Kabuta village in Kiharu. Kenya Railways Corporation (KRC) disclosed that the fire was caused by an electric fault in the engine. 

    In January 2021, yet another Nanyuki bound train stalled mid-journey, leaving passengers stranded for five and a half hours.

    The train developed mechanical problems, before stalling at a remote ravine in Nyeri County.

    Recent statistics by the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) show a rise in cases of road accidents in 2021, compared to a similar period last year.

    The survey indicated that fatalities had increased by 25 percent as of September 20, 2021.

    The accidents were attributed to reckless driving, dangerous overtaking, drunk driving, drunk walking, drunk riding, failure to use helmets among other issues. By Stephanie Wangari,
