21 June 2015, 21:30 Geoffrey Kimagut

Narok - Three people were killed while seven others sustained injuries when the vehicles they were travelling in were involved a road accident in Narok County Saturday.

The accident occurred near Olerai area along Narok-Bomet Highway, about 20 kilometres from Ololulunga trading centre.

Narok South OCPD, Philip Kipkirui said the accident happened after Nissan matatu collided head on with a lorry.

“The driver of the lorry lost control and rammed into a Nissan Matatu travelling in the opposite direction,” said Kipkirui.

He said that preliminary investigations show that the driver of the lorry might have slept at the time of the accident after a long distance of travel because he hit the matatu on its lane.

“We are yet to ascertain the cause of the accident before we take any action,” said the OCPD.

The police boss said two people died on the spot due to the impact of the collision while the third passed away while being rushed to the Tenwek Mission Hospital in Bomet County for treatment.

Kipkirui said the lorry, which was ferrying bread, was heading to Bomet while the Nissan matatu was going to Narok town.

The driver and the conductor of the matatu sustained serious injuries and are admitted at Tenwek Mission Hospital together with five other passengers.

The driver and turn boy of the lorry, sustained minor injuries and are receiving treatment at Longisa Referral Hospital in Bomet.

The bodies of the deceased were taken to Narok County Referral Hospital for postmortem examinations.

Kipkirui urged drivers plying the route to exercise caution on the road noting that speeding and reckless driving were posing threat to innocent passengers and pedestrians.

Two weeks ago, an employee of Narok County Government was killed while four others sustained injuries after the vehicles they were travelling in were involved in a road accident at Total area near Narok town along the same road.

The accident happened after the saloon car collided head on with oncoming lorry.

The Narok County staff died on the spot while his girlfriend sustained serious injuries.
