At least 5 killed, 45 injured in Siaya road accident

29 November 2014, 16:52

Siaya - At least five church members were killed, and 45 others injured in a road accident in Siaya County , police confirmed on Saturday.

Rarieda divisional police commander Johanna Chebii said the accident occurred along Chianda-Okella un-tarmacked road in Rarieda area on Friday night.

"The driver of the bus lost control while trying to negotiate a corner before it rolled severally, killing five of the occupants on the spot," said Chebii. "It seems the bus driver did not notice the sharp bend since this was his first time in the area since he was speeding."

The bus driver fled from the scene immediately after the tragic accident, and the injured have been under treatment in local hospital.

Chebii said the deceased, who were members of the E-Father Ministries Church, were coming from Nairobi to the home of one of the members before the accident occurred at around 8:00 p.m.
