Likoni ferry channel accident

On Saturday, December 24, two people narrowly avoided catastrophe when the truck they were driving crashed into the Indian Ocean at the Likoni Ferry connecting channel.

According to reports, the truck driver who was transporting cement from Mombasa Island lost control of the truck as he stepped off the ferry, sending it careening into the water.

According to Coast Regional Commissioner John Elungata, who confirmed the event, the driver and his conductor were safely extricated from the sinking car by on-call divers and security personnel patrolling the crossing channel.

By attaching the car to the ship, the staff prevented it from sinking any farther.

Elungata claims that initial examinations have shown that the truck's overweight condition with cement may have contributed to a mechanical failure.

Since then, the vehicle has been retrieved from the water and confiscated while the inquiry is ongoing.
