Kenya: Caution Urged After Gas Tanker Exploded in Chyulu Hills


Nairobi — Police are urging motorists to be cautious when approaching an accident scene at Chyulu Hills on the Mombasa-Nairobi Highway where a gas tanker collided with a truck.

A section of the Mombasa Highway has been blocked following the accident that occurred at around 2am blocking both lanes of the road and causing a huge traffic jam.

Police say the gas tanker is leaking and has exploded into flames but no casualty has been reported so far.

Traffic Commandant Samuel Kimaru explained that fire-fighters and other emergency teams are at the scene.

"Motorists from Nairobi heading to Mombasa have been advised to divert at Emali and take the Loitoktok- Taveta Road then head to Voi while those travelling from Mombasa to Nairobi should divert at Voi and take the Taveta- Loitoktok- Emali Road to Nairobi," he stated.
