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.
She urged motorists to be careful and adhere to traffic rules.
The bodies were taken to St Mary’s Mumias Mission Hospital morgue.
