Truck runs over four family members, kills them instantly

19 August 2015, 15:45 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - Four family members were Wednesday crushed to death near Kibunja area on the Nakuru–Eldoret Highway after a truck ran over a motorcycle they were riding.

The four, a man, his wife and two daughters were travelling from Jogoo to Kibunja before the overtaking truck ran over the motorcycle, killing them on the spot.

The lorry driver did not stop after causing the accident, but was intercepted at Salgaa trading centre about 20 kilometers away.

Salgaa traffic commander, Walter Kiptala who confirmed the incident, said the driver will be charged with reckless driving and murder at the Molo Law Courts.

Kiptala warned motorists especially truck drivers to respect traffic rules.

He said that it is the responsibility of all road users to be alert while on the road to minimise accidents.

The stretch between Kamara and Kibunja, Sachagwan and Salgaa is famous for accidents, most of them fatal involving heavy trucks.

“Drivers and all road users should always respect the traffic rules so as to save lives of innocent people. You don’t have to observe them only when you see a traffic officer," said Kiptala.

“We have already arrested the suspect and will be taken to court after we complete our investigations,” he added.

The bodies were taken to the Molo District Hospital Mortuary.
