William Kingi is grateful to God as he survived an accident on his way to Naivasha on Wednesday night.
The Mombasa deputy governor said he and five others sustained "minor bruises".
"God is great," he said.
"Last night on our way to Naivasha for the deputy governors' caucus meeting, we were involved in an accident... I thank God for his protection," he said via Twitter.
Pictures of the vehicle the six were travelling in showed a mangled car.
Kingi was unreachable on phone but he later posted: "Safe and sound at deputy governor caucus meeting in Naivasha."
Road accidents claimed many lives on Kenya's roads last year. The deaths numbered
at least 330 in December alone and about 3,500 that whole year.
Among the victims was Nyeri governor Wahome Gakuru.
