Young Kenyan Man Passes Away After Tram Accident in Griesheim

Brian Njuguna

A young Kenyan man this week passed away following an accident that occurred earlier this month.

On the morning of Saturday 8th October at 1:37am,  the Tram 9 from Darmstadt was driving through the Wilhelm-Leuschner-Straße towards Griesheim when it got to the Freiligrathstraße it hit an obstacle. On closer inspection, the tram driver found it was the body of a young Kenyan man who lay across the tram rails.

How did he get there? Was he there when the tram got there? Did he fall as he tried to cross the street? These and many more questions remain unanswered as by the time the police arrived all the passengers who had been in the tram had left the scene. The police are still looking for witnesses, so if you were there that night please call the numbers 06155/8385-0 or 06151/9693710.

The 21 year old identified as Brian Njuguna was that morning taken to hospital where he stayed until earlier this week, where he finally passed on.

Brian leaves behind his mother and a twin brother.
