Another vehicle, this time a truck has plunged into the Indian Ocean at the Likoni channel, two days after a similar incident involving a tour bus.

Early Wednesday morning, a semi-trailer truck lost control while boarding MV Kilindini ferry on the mainland side and fell into the ocean.

The driver of the truck escaped unhurt during the 4.15am incident.

According to Kenya Ferry Services (KFS), the driver lost control after hitting the ferry’s prow, causing the truck to plunge into the sea.

“The truck had one occupant who escaped unhurt. The salvage operation is underway,” read a brief statement from KFS released Wednesday morning.

The management notified ferry users that a delay might be experienced at the channel as ferries are landing on one side of ramp.

A towing truck had already arrived early morning to help in retrieving the vehicle.

KFS said it was waiting for the tidal movements to go down before the truck could be pulled out of the water.
