An accident involving a trailer and a personal car has left one person dead with a passenger narrowly escaping the fatal crash.
This is after a trailer fell on a personal vehicle model Nissan NV 200 crashing it severely.
The tragedy occurred in the Gitaru interchange right before the Southern By-pass along the Kikukuyu-Wangige Road in Kiambu County on the morning of Wednesday, December 15.
The passenger who was seated at the co-drivers seat survived the ordeal with injuries as the edges of the trailer crashed on the driver's side.
The trailer's driver also sustained injuries and together with the car's passenger, they were rushed to Kikuyu Hospital.
According to witnesses, the driver of the trailer lost control after his breaks failed to work.
"He never intended to hit the car. He wanted to park aside but unfortunately, the trailer's head hit a wall and it fell. The personal car's driver could not escape because there was a car beside him," a witness told the media.
Police officers arrived at the scene and sought the services of a crane machine to remove the trailer which had rested on the wreckage of the personal car.
