It was a déjà vu moment for a motorist on Thika Road on Wednesday evening when a car was pierced through by a guardrail after an accident.
What shocked many Kenyans is that the rail pierced through the vehicle, almost a replica of the freak accident that claimed the life of former Nyeri Governor Wahome Gakuru.
Thika traffic base commander Michael Lemaiyan said there were no casualties in the accident.
He added that the driver of the car, belonging to SGA security firm, was speeding when he rammed onto the guardrails.
Incidentally, the latest accident happened eight days and a few kilometers from where Dr Gakuru’s official Mercedes Benz crashed.
People are now concerned with the quality of the guard rails.
