Road carnages have become rampant over the past few years. These accidents have often been caused by drink driving, reckless driving, overspeeding as well as poor state of the roads. This has regularly led to fatal injuries and deaths in extreme circumstances.
Four people were killed on the spot on Monday morning after they were run over by a vehicle at Kap David near Chepseon, Kericho County. The vehicle is believed to have been overspeeding before hitting past the four who were standing at a bus stop next to the tarmac. The casualties were taken to Kericho County Referral Hospital Morgue.
Transport along the busy Nakuru-Kericho Highway was paralyzed for the better part of the morning after residents blocked the road. According to residents of Kap David, road accidents in the area have increased due to the lack of road bumps heading into Chepseon from Londiani Junction. They have however asked the County Government to clearly mark the road and erect road bumps.
