The shocking thing is that the accidents happened within ten minutes.

The first incidence involved a long distance transit goods lorry which tried to overtake another one despite being on a high speed. The two colluded and both veered off the road and injured the drivers.

One tanker which continued moving for 100 meters hit a motorbike and injured two passengers on the bike.

As villagers ran in melee to rescue them, another motorbike hit one lorry at the back and the rider sustained injuries.

The victims were rushed to Bungoma level five hospital and are undergoing treatment. Two are stable while the remaining are in critical condition.

The place between Sikata and Ndengelwa have proved to be dark spots on the road and residents are calling upon the Kenya National Highway Authority to enact bumps so that accidents are reduced.

Hardly a day passes without an accident occurring on this road.
