As we near the festive and fun-filled Christmas season, motorists ought to be very careful and on high alert while driving as this is one of the seasons when lots of lives are lost due to road carnage.

Speaking of which, a grisly road accident took place yesterday along Mombasa road at Sabaki (slightly past Mlolongo), after a lorry reduced a car to scrap. It was an unbelievable and miraculous escape for the victims who survived the head-on crash.

Below are photos of the ugly scene of accident. Survivors were rushed to Shalom Hospital in Kitengela for first aid.
