Another accident has occurred at Likoni ferry where a trailer has plunged into the Indian ocean.
According to witnesses at the scene, the driver lost control while he tried to get into the ferry.
The trailer is said to have been transporting maize of unknown quantity from Tanzania.
No injuries have been reported so far but there has been a heavy snarl up at the channel as ferries could only dock on one side.
The Likoni ferry channel has experienced a number of accidents, the most recent involving a tourist bus belonging to Pollman’s which lost control and plunged into the ocean a few days ago. No one was injured.
Another accident happened in December where mother and son who were driving from Mombasa plunged into the ocean. The mother died but the son swam to safety.
