A lady, Maximilian Chemutai who survived a motorcycle accident on Boxing Day, was killed few days later in another fatal accident.
The deceased identified as Maximilian Chemutai, survived the first accident on December 26th at Chebarus in Nandi County, Kenya. Chemutai, 21, was returning home from an errand at the local shopping centre when the motorcycle she was travelling in collided with a car along the road. The mother of a three-year-old son survived narrowly, escaping with a minor bruise on her knee.
Grateful to be alive, Chemutai took to Facebook, as a matter of routine, to narrate her luck to her followers.
“God you are so amazing. I will forever glorify and praise your name. I was involved in an accident. It was God’s favour to escape without any serious injuries,” she posted.
She signed off by wishing her friends “a happy and prosperous New Year”, writing in bold letters, a sign of her huge relief.
Fast forward to Saturday afternoon. Chemutai left home to meet the motorcycle rider to “sort out the matter” since the incident had been recorded with the police at the station.
But then in a tragic turn of events, Chemutai was hit by a car while standing by the roadside at the same shopping centre.
This time though, Chemutai was not so lucky. She died on the spot.Eye witnesses say the car brakes failed and ploughed into a crowd that was standing by the roadside, killing six people in its wake.
