Kakamega: Three people seriously injured after 3 vehicles involved in accident

  • The accident occurred at around mid-day on Wednesday and is said to have involved three vehicles; a lorry, matatu, and a canter.
  • Confirming the incident, the inspector in charge of the Northern Corridor Joashua Nyasimi said the truck which was heading to Uganda rammed the matatu, resulting in the crash.

Three people are nursing serious injuries at Webuye sub-county hospital in Kakamega County after they were involved in a road crash at the Kaburengu interchange on the Eldoret –Webuye highway.

The accident occurred at around mid-day on Wednesday and is said to have involved three vehicles; a lorry, matatu, and a canter.

Confirming the incident, the inspector in charge of the Northern Corridor Joashua Nyasimi said the truck which was heading to Uganda rammed the matatu, resulting in the crash.

According to Mr. Nyasimi, the brakes of the lorry which was carrying construction materials failed at Chimoi.

The driver thereafter lost control at Kaburengu, ramming the matatu as it was slowing down at nearby bumps.

He hence urged motorists to drive slowly during the rainy season since the area is a known black spot, further advising them to constantly check their brakes before beginning their journeys.

At the same time, area residents blamed the county government for failing to erect a matatu terminal for vehicles, which they say has led to weekly accidents claiming many innocent lives on the road.
