" 2 people died on the spot while the other two died while receiving treatment," he added.

Thirteen other people, mostly pedestrians, were also injured in the Tuesday mornign accident.

The truck driver was ferrying goods to Moyale when he reportedly lost control at Subuiga Hill in Meru, before descending downhill.

The truck hit three vehicles, a motorcycle and pedestrians near Isiolo County Market. The pedestrians were at Isiolo Market for Christmas shopping

The driver and turn boy fled the scene of the accident.

" We are looking for them. We will catch up with them soon as we already know the owner through the registration numbers," he added.
