Car Hits and Kills a Cyclist in Makindu before Evading


A motorist has succumbed to serious injuries after a matatu hit his motorbike while on the road before it escaped on the broad light.

The accident is said to have occurred in Makindu town, just few meters from the matatu stage which is along the Mombasa- Nairobi highway. The 35 year old man died in Makindu Level 4 hospital where he was rushed quickly after the accident. However, he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Angry motorists have urged for quick man-hunt for the car owner who escaped after committing the crime. Efforts by the motorists to run after the car bore no fruits as it over speeded.

Police commander in Makindu has disclosed that police are investigating the matter and search for the car has begun. He has urged the cyclist to be calm as the matter will be handled by detectives.

The Mombasa-Nairobi highway has been on the rise for accidents. Last week, a car burst it's tyre and rolled severally killing seven. This has raised concerns on the safety of passengers on the busy road.
