Two perish in Kakamega road accident

25 June 2014, 11:31 Kennedy Okwach

Kakamega - Two people died and one was seriously injured in a grisly road accident Tuesday near Mukumu Girl’s High School along Kakamega - Kisumu Road.

The accident occurred when the private car rammed into a parked Pine Breeze Academy school bus.

The car was headed to Kakamega town while the bus was going in the opposite direction.

Two occupants of the car, a lady and gentleman, died instantly while the third occupant is admitted at Kakamega County General hospital in critical condition.

Thomas Ngaira, the school bus driver, said the car was being driven carelessly and it was hovering and meandering across the road.

He explained that he had parked the bus by the roadside when the speeding car rammed into it, veered off the road and rolled several times killing the driver and a female passenger.

“From a distance, I saw a speeding car hovering in the road and decided to pave way for them by parking on the roadside. But the car rammed into the bus and rolled several times,” said Ngaira who observed that the occupants of the car seemed to be intoxicated.

“They were shouting and singing along to loud the music booming from their car. They seemed to be drunk as the driver kept hooting at me.”

The bus driver and another occupant in the bus escaped uninjured.

Confirming the incident, Kakamega Deputy OCPD Daniel Kinyua said the accident happened at 5.00pm and preliminary investigations showed that the car driver was over speeding when he lost control of the vehicle.

“We are waiting for postmortem results to establish if the driver was drunk or not,” said Kinyua.

The wreckage of the car was towed to Kakamega central police station.

Kinyua cautioned drivers using the road to drive carefully because it is under construction and one can easily slide off or cause an accident.

The bodies of the deceased were taken to Kakamega county general hospital mortuary awaiting postmortem.
