The Star reports that the driver was transporting sugarcane to Kibos factory when he lost control of the vehicle, falling 15 meters off the newly constructed flyover.

The loader died on his way to Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral hospital while the driver died on arrival, Standard reports.
