A 57-year-old medical doctor allegedly committed suicide on Thursday, after throwing herself in front of a speeding lorry in Kajiado town, along Namanga Highway.

The deceased, identified as Eunice Kinuthia who until her tragic death was working at Kajiado County Referral Hospital.

According to the lorry driver Dennis Owino, he was driving along the highway when the woman threw herself before the moving lorry.

He added that despite holding the breaks the deceased attempted to support herself on the lorry’s side mirror.

“When I spotted her, I slammed the brakes on. She held on to one of the side mirrors. The braking impact, given the vehicle was in high speed, threw her off, causing her instant death,” said Owino.

Other witnesses at the scene said the deceased must have been psychologically disturbed since she was spotted seated quietly on the guard-rails since morning.

The body of the deceased was lifted to Kajiado County Referral Hospital morgue as police carry out investigations into the alleged suicide case.
