One person died as three others sustained serious injuries in Kajiado town on Friday after a vehicle they were travelling in hit a moving train.

Police said the accident occurred at 3.35 am near Olkejuado High School when the driver of a sand truck headed towards Mashuuru hit a Tata Chemicals Magadi Ltd train that was headed to Konza.

The diver of the sand truck, the police said, failed to stop at the railway crossing and thus caused the death of one person, who is a sand loader.

They gave the name of the driver as Albanus Mutinda, 34, and said he sustained leg and head injuries.

Others are Daniel Solol, 32, who sustained a serious head injury while Dominic Kioko suffered injuries on his left hand and head.

All the injured were admitted to Kajiado County Hospital, while the dead man was moved to the same hospital’s mortuary to await postmortem.

Police suspects that the truck had no working lights and because of poor visibility the driver hit the moving train.

The man who died was picked alongside other loaders at the turn-off of Kajiado/Mashuuru junction. They are paid Sh700 by drivers to load one truck.

Sand harvesting business is vibrant in Kajiado County because of their quality and are transported to Nairobi city and its satellite towns.
