According to the police, the Probox was attempting to overtake a lorry when it rammed into an oncoming truck loaded with timber.

“The driver of the Probox tried to avoid hitting an on-coming trailer ferrying timber headed to Kajiado town. The Probox hit the front right side of the truck which made it swerve off the road,” Central Sub-County police commander Daudi Lornyokwe said.

In the Probox were four occupants, one of whom was a Burundian national identified as 34-year-old Isidore Birigirimana.
