Nairobi (Kenya): A major accident occurred in the African country of Kenya on Sunday. The death toll in a bus accident here has risen to 30. The police gave this information on Monday. The search operation is going on at the incident site.
A passenger bus traveling from Kenya’s Meru city to the capital Nairobi fell into the river below a bridge on the highway on Sunday evening. There is no clear information about how many people were on the bus.
Rono Bunei, a senior police officer, said the brakes of the bus must have failed as it was traveling at a very high speed at the time of the accident. Bunei said in the early hours of Monday that the death toll in the accident had risen from 24 to 30, while others who were injured were hospitalized.
It is worth noting that in addition to narrow roads in Kenya, there are many more accidents due to speeding vehicles. On July 8, at least 20 passengers were killed in an accident on a highway from Nairobi to the coastal city of Mombasa.
