Two people died on the spot after a motorcycle collided with a lorry on Mumias-Bungoma Road on Friday.
The boda boda rider and his two passengers died on the spot during the night collision at Kholera Bridge.
Witnesses said the driver of the Bungoma-bound canter lost control and collided with the cyclist.
Resident Joan Sinda said she was at home at around 9pm when she heard a bang and rushed to the scene.
"I was preparing supper for my family when suddenly I heard a bang," she said.
Mumias Police Commander Agnes Herbart said the owner of the car who escaped unhurt went into hiding.
