While responding to an accident that occurred along the Nakuru-Nairobi highway on Saturday, March 23, traffic officers were left in dismay on realising that the vehicle in question was loaded with marijuana (also known as bhang) worth millions.
During the accident, the driver of the ill-fated vehicle, was seriously injured while one person who was on board fled with minor injuries.
The traffic officers came to the rescue of the driver and rushed him to Naivasha sub-county hospital under security.
Naivasha police commander Mr. Samuel Waweru confirmed the incident.
“It was obvious the motorist was speeding in an attempt to dodge police manning several roadblocks mounted along the busy highway,” Waweru said.
A manhunt has been launched for the passenger who fled the scene.
