Motorists using the Langata Road-Airtel stretch on the Southern bypass were on Monday, May 31, greeted by a heavy traffic snarl up caused by an accident involving two trucks and a personal vehicle.
Two trucks were involved in a head-on collision after the truck, heading towards Mombasa Road lost control, veered into the on-coming traffic and hit another trailer head on in the area adjacent to Carnivore Gardens.
The overturned truck covered two lanes of the bypass forcing the motorists to use the service lane.
A personal vehicle that was also involved in the carnage has been towed away.
The traffic situation spilled over to Mombasa Road and Langata Road. Traffic Police are on site to manage the situation.
The Southern By-Pass was on the spot a week ago over insecurity concerns as several motorists claim to have been mugged when using the road.
