At least 11 people were killed and numerous others were hurt when a bus carrying revelers hit a matatu and slammed into a trailer on Saturday night at the notorious Subuiga blackspot on the Meru-Nanyuki road.
The bus struck Menany Sacco’s matatu head-on and pushed it over 20 meters off the road as it was passing another vehicle and descending a steep portion of the road.
Mr Mwiti said those who were in the bus were young and appeared to have been heading to a party since they had assorted alcoholic beverages.
“The bus’ seats had bottles of beer. The passengers appeared to have been partying or heading to a party,” he said.
