Road Accident

Three People Killed After Speeding Lorry Was Involved in Tragic Accident Along Busy Road in Bungoma

Over the past few years, Kenya has experienced an increase in cases of road traffic crashes as a result speeding, dangerous overtaking and distracted driving.

Three people have lost their lives after a lorry they were travelling in rolled along the Kapsokwony-Kopsiro road in Mt Elgon constituency, Bungoma county.

The crash occurred after one of the vehicle’s rear tyres burst before it rolled several times, killing the three on the spot.

The lorry was transporting cabbages from Kopsiro towards Kapsokeiny when the incident occurred.

Bodies of the deceased were taken to the nearby mortuary awaiting identification by their relatives.

Police who visited the scene cautioned long distance drivers plying the route to avoid driving under fatigue as that is the reason behind the high number of accidents along the highway.

This comes after the National Transport and Safety Authority announced that it will continue cracking down on unroadworthy vehicles and prosecute errant drivers.
