Police said 19 people sustained minor to moderate injuries in the crash, and were taken to Kisii Teaching and Referral Hospital where they are receiving treatment.

Preliminary investigations indicate that the bus's braking system failed, resulting in the vehicle hurtling into the river after being hit from the rear by a lorry at 4am.

The Guardian Angel bus from Nairobi was scheduled to arrive in Migori early Saturday morning. [Sammy Omingo, Standard]
