Two escape unhurt after train rams their auto in Mutindwa accident

Two escape unhurt after train rams their auto in Mutindwa accident”

Two people escaped death by a whisker after a Nairobi commuter train hit their vehicle in Mutindwa on Wednesday morning May 2nd.

No casualties were reported but the personal vehicle was severely damaged and thrown beside the railway.

The witnesses said that they tried to stop the driver of the vehicle, but their calls fell on dead ears and that is when the train hit the front part of the Toyota Wish.

"The lady driver panicked after she saw the train approaching and dashed out of the vehicle together with her passenger", a police officer said at the scene.

Most vehicles use the road which connects Umoja to Buruburu estate to evade traffic on Jogoo Road. Heavy rains have eaten up the soil around the rail making it hard for motorists to cross quickly.

Witnesses revealed that the two trains, running on the old Nairobi-Mombasa railway line, were approaching the Mtito Andei station when one rammed into the other.

Both trains were both heading towards Mombasa when the accident occurred.

This is the second time an accident has happened at the level crossing.
