A bus  crashed into the Nithi River valley, Sunday night, along the Meru-Nairobi highway Sunday night while on route to Mombasa.

The vehicle plunged into Nithi River, approximately 40 metres below the bridge.

Rescue operations are underway and being overseen by Tharaka Nithi County Rescue team manager Alex Mugambi. Many of those injured were rushed to Chuka County Referral Hospital and PCEA Chogoria Mission Hospital.

According to eyewitnesses, the bus seemed to have had trouble braking and manoeuvring the Nithi River valley saying, “The bus must have developed brake failure because it was at a very high speed when the accident happened.

According to Tharaka Nithi County Police Commander Donatha Chali, officers kept vigil at the scene for the whole night until the rescue operation resumed. The total number of fatalities feared to rise as rescue operations continue to free those trapped under the wreckage.

Ten people have so far survived the horrific crash.
