One person has died after the luxury vehicle he was driving rammed a lorry on the Southern Bypass in Nairobi early Thursday morning.

Police say the driver of the BMW X5 died on the spot after he rammed his vehicle into the underride of the cargo-carrying lorry that was being driven on the fast lane.

Photos of the badly damaged car started circulating on social media on Thursday morning as some blamed the BMW driver for speeding while others faulted the lorry driver for using the outer lane without lights and hazard on.


The body of the deceased was later moved from the scene to City Mortuary while his vehicle was towed to Lang’ata police station as the family was informed of the fatal crash.
