Police Officer Involved In Grisly Accident While Heading To Pick Colleagues Manning Ongoing Exams

A police officer is nursing serious injuries at a local hospital in Siaya County after he was involved in a road accident along the busy Kisumu-Busia road.

The Wednesday morning accident involved a police vehicle that was heading to pick officers who were set to man the ongoing national examinations and a truck heading in the opposite direction.

According to area police boss, a trailer rammed into the police van at Kodiaga, leaving the officer with serious injuries on both legs. The officer was heading to Ugunja from Yala when the incident occurred.

Emergency rescue teams who rushed to the scene of the crash ferried the injured officer to a hospital where he is currently undergoing treatment.

To avert a further surge in the number of road accidents, police said they’ll work with the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) to conduct random inspections on public service vehicles, boda bodas and personal vehicles.
