Road accidents in the country have continued to rise over the past few years. These carnages have often been caused by reckless driving, overspeeding, drink driving among other negativities. Accidents have in most cases led to fatal injuries and deaths in extreme situations.
Several people have been left nursing fatal injuries following a grisly road carnage at Siret Center along the meandering Londiani-Fort-Ternan-Muhoroni Highway. The accident occurred at about 1pm.
According to eye-witnesses, the 62-seater bus was overspeeding down the tarmac before the driver lost control. The bus veered off the road and would later overturn, injuring several passengers on board.
The injured passengers have since been rushed to the Kipkelion West Sub-County Hospital, while those in need of further medical attention referred to the Kericho County Referral Hospital.
This fatal road accident comes a few days after five people were killed in another road accident at Jambo Kenya junction, not very far from Siret. The rising cases of road accidents along the Londiani-Fort-Ternan-Muhoroni Highway is slowly becoming a growing.
