Three 16-year-old girls have died as singer Willy Paul sustained serious injuries after the car they were in hit a pole along Mombasa road on Friday night.
Traffic officers who arrived at the scene at 9:42 pm are yet to establish the cause of the fatal accident even as sources confirm that the car was at an unrealistic high speed at the time the accident happened.
According to police, 16-year-old Tirzah Wambui, of Buruburu, 16-year-old Pinkly Mwende of Kilimani and 16-year-old Sophia Nduku, of Ngong, were pronounced dead at the scene.
The three were students at Ushirika Secondary school.
“It is with great sadness that we report that three students have tragically passed away. Singer Willy Paul is undergoing treatment at Nairobi Hospital as we dig deep into the matter to establish the exact cause of the accident” Douglas Kipyegon said.
