At least 15 people have died in a road accident along the Mombasa-Malindi road in Kenya’s coastal region, a government official has told the BBC.

About 20 others were injured following the early morning head-on collision involving two passenger buses. Both drivers died on the spot.

A video has been shared of a mangled wreckage of the two vehicles, and civilians helping load the injured and dead on rescue vehicles.

Eyewitness say the road section where the accident occurred has been under construction.
