SUMMARY

According to locals, the body of the deceased was taken to Nakuru War Memorial hospital almost half an hour later

Residents have asked the county government to put bumps in the area to avoid a similar incident in future

A 25-year-old woman in Nakuru was killed when a lorry, fleeing from police officers, rammed into her shop on Monday afternoon.

Eunice Maguke was arranging groceries in her kiosk when the lorry, which was loaded with soil hit her, killing her on the spot.

The accident took place in Kabachi area and according to eye-witnesses, the driver of the lorry attempted to escape but was stopped by boda-boda riders.

“I saw a lorry speeding towards our kiosks, and within seconds, screams filled the air and the next minute, I saw Ms Maguke’s body.

“The driver of the lorry tried escaping before boda-boda riders intercepted him and beat him up. He was rushed to a local hospital,” Ms Gladys Nekesa, who owns an adjacent kiosk, told a local daily.

According to locals, the body of the deceased was taken to Nakuru War Memorial hospital almost half an hour later despite the fact that the accident scene is not far from the police station.

James Ouko, brother to the deceased, reported the matter at Nakuru Police Station under OB number 031/11/2/2018 and her husband Walter Oginga is now demanding justice.

Residents have asked the county government to put bumps in the area to avoid a similar incident in future.
