Eight people die in the Kakamega-Webuye highway accident, Kakamega county.
Kakamega Police Boss Hassan Barua said the accident occurred at 5:15 am.
Barua stated that the Matatu rammed into a stationary truck at the Musembe area.
“The matatu, a part of the 2NK Sacco, was heading to Nairobi from Bungoma when it hit the lorry from behind at Musembe. Our officers rushed the injured passengers to Webuye Sub-county Hospital,” Barua told journalists.
However, Barua failed to confirm whether the accident occurred due to poor visibility or speeding of the matatu, saying that investigations are ongoing.
“The police are still investigating the accident,” Barua said.
Eyewitnesses said that the driver of the Matatu is among those who died on the spot while the rest who survived were rushed to the Webuye Sub-county Hospital.
