7 killed in grisly accident along Kisumu-Busia road

Seven people were killed after a truck carrying sugarcane rammed two vehicles at Kisian on the Kisumu-Busia road.

County police boss Ranson Lolmodoni said investigations are underway to ascertain the cause of the accident.

Locals said the truck which was coming from Maseno and heading towards Kisumu lost control.

The truck is said to have hit a Nissan matatu which was headed to Busia and another private car.

The incident caused a traffic snarl up on the busy road as police attempted to rescue those injured and rush them to hospital.

Angry locals attempted to set the truck on fire but the officers managed to disperse them.

Dr. Peter Okoth, the CEO of Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital, said they had only received 5 bodies.
