 Road users should take the necessary precautions especially at night and more so wear reflector jackets to minimize incidences of accidents, police have warned.

Speaking to MWINGI TIMES, Mwingi OCPD Peter Mutuma decried an increase in road crashes within the township.

The Mwingi police boss was speaking after confirming injury of four road users yesterday at around 7pm.

The accident occurred along Mwingi-Thika road involving a motor vehicle which was being driven from Mwingi general direction towards Thika direction.

“Upon reaching Delta petrol station, there were four men carrying a billboard that was wide enough to occupy a reasonable part of the road, without reflecting materials to alert other road users at night hours heading the same direction hence the driver did not notice them from a distance, rammed on them and stopped a few meters away on the left side.”, said Mutuma.

The Mwingi police commander said Peter Kitili, Mbuvi Muthui, James Kilanga and Francis Kyalo Mulyungi were seriously injured during the accident. All the four were taken to Mwingi Level Four Hospital and the vehicle that hit them was detained at Mwingi Police Station awaiting inspection and further police action.
