 The officer, who was riding a motorcycle, was heading to Gilgil from Naivasha when the car hit him from behind in an apparent hit-and-run incident.

The Anti-Stock Theft Unit officer died as he was being taken to hospital. The accident caused a huge traffic jam before traffic police from the nearby Gilgil Police Station collected the body.
