Among the dead are quarry workers who were inside a lorry at the time of the accident.

The victims had reportedly gone to purchase stones

The injured have been rushed to Thika Level Five Hospital for treatment.

Cases of quarries collapsing have been on the rise due to the continued pounding of rains in many parts of the country.

In 2018, a quarry collapsed killing three people in Kalimoni Ward, Juja, Kiambu County.

The 3 had gone to collect stones when heavy rains pounded the area and forced them to seek shelter under the rocks.
