Deputy school principal, teacher and pastor killed in a road accident at Shibuli market, Kakamega County.

Police said the three lost their lives on the spot.

The accident according to police involved a car and a Nissan matatu.

A major traffic snarl-up built up on the busy highway before police came to tow away the wreckage of the matatu.

An eye witness noted that the vehicle heading to Mumias, Kakamega County from Kakamega town rammed into a lorry as it attempted to overtake another vehicle.

"The matatu collided head-on with a car after it attempted to overtake another vehicle.

According to Mumias Road Safety Association Chairman, the matatu driver was to blame for the accident.

He said the driver left his lane while overtaking and hit the matatu.

He said it was time traffic officers who man the highways took their job seriously.

“For the past two days we have not had traffic officers on the road and as result, drivers have been speeding," said the officer.

Police who arrived at the scene minutes later quickly towed the wreckage to minimize traffic disruption.

They also stationed traffic marshals to control the build-up that resulted from the accident.
