One person has died, two others injured in a road accident involving a Toyota Noah and two trucks on the Eldoret-Malaba Highway.
Police say one of the trucks lost control of its breaks at River Nzoia bridge, hit Toyota Noah which as a result, veered off the road. The truck then hit a sand-transporting truck before it veered off the road as well.
While confirming the incident, Matete Sub-County Commander Thomas Ototo said the driver of the truck died while the other two drivers and the Turn boy of the sand-transporting were rushed to Webuye County Hospital.
“The truck burst into flames after veering off the road. The truck burst into flames killing the driver on the spot. However, the Noah driver had some injuries on the head,” Ototo told The Standard.
Police say the three vehicles were headed towards the same direction, Webuye from Eldoret.
Eyewitnesses say the truck rammed into a personal vehicle at Kaburengu Junction about 6km to Webuye.
"The trailer was speeding after its breaks failed while approaching the bridge. A motorist heading to Webuye tried to overtake it but hit from behind and veered off the road," an eye witness told The Standard.
