Sad Tragedy: More Than 15 Feared Dead in Grisly Road Accident As Vehicle Severally Roll Downslope

According to the report, another road accident believed to have claimed a number of lives has occurred.

The area police boss Kivinda Kilonzo, who confirmed the tragedy, said that the 21-seater minibus suspected to have carried more than 15 passengers ran out of fuel while climbing the steep bridge which caused it to roll back several times before landing into a ditch.

Mr. Kilonzo said that the bus was heading to Siakago, Mbeere North when the accident took place.

The driver had sent the conductor to buy some fuel from the nearby Petrol filling station. However, on adding the fuel and starting the engine of the bus, the vehicle started rolling back several times downslope. Though the number has not been confirmed, it is feared that several passengers have died.

"The driver sent the conductor to buy fuel from a nearby filling station. Upon returning with the fuel and igniting the engine, the vehicle rolled back several times. We suspect several passengers died in the accident." Area police boss Kivinda Kilonzo told the media.
