A middle-aged man died in Kajiado town on Thursday afternoon after a car he was travelling in was involved in an accident with another vehicle.
This happened as scores of passengers travelling in a matatu escaped death after the private car avoided hitting it on the Shell Petrol stretch in Kajiado town.
Both cars were moving in on direction when the accident occurred, according to eyewitnesses at the scene of the accident.
The dead man, according to eyewitnesses, was in a Pajero vehicle that was speeding past the town when its driver swerved it to avoid hitting at a matatu vehicle ahead and which was headed into the town.
In the process, the private car rolled several times after it lost control in the process. The passenger was pronounced dead on arrival at Kajiado county referral hospital.
His driver escaped death but came out with multiple injuries. He was also taken to the same hospital. The police towed the partly damaged car to Central Police Station.
