Drunken lorry driver dies in accident

06 September 2013, 12:05 Arap Yego

A suspected drunk driver died on the spot after the lorry he was driving rammed into a Nissan matatu along the Chwele - Kimili Road causing both vehicles to plunge into a nearby river.

Over 20 passengers, including students who were going back to school, were injured in the incident.

Eyewitnesses said that the two vehicles were headed to Kimilili town when the lorry lost control and hit the Nissan Matatu after an oncoming vehicle thwarted its bid to overtake.

The vehicle plunged into a nearby river, while the lorry that was ferrying sand rolled several times claiming the life of the driver as the co-driver alongside one other passenger on board escaped with minor injuries.

Dr Stephen Wambasi, the Kimilili District Hospital Medical officer of Health, where the victims were taken for treatment, confirmed that 10 passengers in the overloaded public service vehicle sustained serious injuries and were rushed to different hospitals for specialised treatment.

Cleophas Mulati, who was in the ill-fated lorry, told the media at his hospital bed that the lorry driver was under the influence of alcohol and was over speeding when the accident occurred.

The matatu is said to have been carrying 22 passengers at the time of the accident according to police officers.  A bottle of the illicit chang’aa brew was reportedly found in the pockets of the lorry driver.

Kimilili Traffic Base commander, Stephen Mshanga, who rushed to the scene of the accident warned drivers against flouting traffic rules and further called on them to curb the road carnage occasioned by senseless behaviours such as driving while under the influence of alcohol and drugs.
