One killed when trucks burst into flames after crash in Manyani


One person was killed and two others injured after two trailers collided and burst into flames in Manyani on the Nairobi-Mombasa highway.

Police say the driver of one of the trucks was burnt beyond recognition in the Tuesday morning crash.

A third lorry overturned after it hit the two that had collided.

According to Voi OCPD Joshua Litukai, one the trucks was ferrying wheat and was heading to Nairobi while the two other were being driven to Mombasa.

He said one of the burnt vehicles is an oil tanker but it was not ferrying fuel at the time of the crash.
