Two people narrowly escaped death after their car ploughed into a roadside church in Kisumu on Friday night.

The duo, who were too terrified to talk, sat at the altar of the Neno-Evangelism church on Moscow road for hours after rescuers removed them from the wreck.

“We saw the car racing past Mamba Club in high speed. It is like the driver - a young woman, lost control before it happened,” said Martin Ogola, an eyewitness.

 “The impact broke the church metal doors. It was a miracle to survive. I have never heard of anything like this.”

The driver of the dark blue Toyota, and her male companion were seen in silent prayers at the altar and were to shaken to speak, said a witness.

 A police officer who visited the scene told Sunday Standard that the driver may have panicked after losing control of the vehicle and accelerated instead of hitting the brakes.
