A person died and another seriously injuried after they were involved in a road accident at Salgaa near Molo River Bridge along Nakuru-Eldoret highway.

Witnesses said two trailers collided at about 7am yesterday, as one of them was trying to avoid a motorbike.

Rongai Sub-County police boss Richard Rotich said one of the trailers was out of its lane leading to the collision.

“We are conducting a crackdown to arrest those drivers who do not observe traffic rules so we can ensure that such accidents do not recur,” he said.

The highway has recorded many fatal accidents over the years.

However, the recent construction of Sobea-Salgaa-Mau Summit dual carriageway has reduced accidents.
