At least one truck driver died on Saturday in a tragic morning road accident that involved several trailers plying the Mombasa-Nairobi highway.

The accident involved three long distance trucks, two heading to Nairobi from Mombasa while one heading to Mombasa from Nairobi.

It is reported that one of the drivers involved in the tragic road accident was sliced into two pieces after the front part of the trailer was completely crashed.

The accident yielded to a major snarl-up stretching to over 50 kilometers on both sides.

It further forced buses plying the Mombasa Nairobi highway to delay for more than six hours before a section of the road was opened for slow movement.

The accident may have been hugely triggered by the heavy downpour in the area.
