A trailer plunged into the Indian Ocean at the Likoni Crossing Channel.

The Wednesday morning accident was confirmed by police who added that there were no casualties reported.

Reports indicate that the trailer was hauling maize from Tanzania although the exact quantity remains unknown.

No injuries had been reported as of the publishing of this report but the incident caused a heavy snarl-up at the ferry as ferries could only dock on one side.

This comes after a tourist bus on Sunday morning plunged into the Indian Ocean at the Likoni Crossing Channel.

The Pollmans Tours and Safaris bus was travelling from South Coast to Mombasa Island when it plunged into the Ocean at around 9am.

The driver of the bus was attempting to board the ferry when he missed the ramp.

 “I tried to stop the bus but it kept on sliding,” the driver said, blaming the incident to the heavy rains pounding the region.
