“This truck was headed to Nakuru town when the driver hit emergency breaks as he tried to avoid a bump on the road and that’s when it overturned,”  he said.

The truck driver, who was the only passenger on board, was rushed to Nakuru Provincial General Hospital after sustaining some injuries on his head.
