Five people killed in Makueni road crash in Makueni

Five people were Wednesday morning killed in a road accident between Machinery and Kambu towns in Makueni along the Mombasa-Nairobi highway.

The accident occurred when a bus collided head-on with a trailer that was heading to Nairobi.

Kibwezi sub-county police commander Peter Maina said the bus rammed into the rear side of a tractor headed in the same direction, with the impact throwing it onto the other lane before it collided head-on with a trailer.

Those who died were the driver of the trailer, tractor, and bus, and two passengers who were in the trailer.

Several other passengers sustained injuries and are undergoing treatment at Kibwezi sub-county hospital.
