A long-haul truck has plunged into the Indian Ocean at Likoni Ferry Crossing, only two days after a tourist bus suffered similar fate.
The accident happened at around 4:15am today. The driver escaped unhurt when he lost control of the truck while boarding MV Kilindini ferry.
“The salvage operation is underway,” said statement from Kenya Ferry Services (KFS) released Wednesday morning.
KFS had to wait for the tidal movements to go dissipate before the truck could be pulled out of the water.
Two days ago, a bus belonging to Pollman Tours and Safari Company also plunged into the ocean at the same spot. The bus was boarding MV Jambo ferry.
Salim Omar, driver, and his conductor, John Omutere escaped unhurt. Reports indicate that the frequent cause of accidents is the poor design of the boarding ramp.
