A Matatu Collides With Truck In Molo Killing One, Injuring Five People

A matatu drove into a trailer in the Molo region on Sunday morning, killing one person and injuring five others. 

According to the truck driver’s statement, both vehicles were headed towards Eldoret, and when they arrived at Jolly Farm in Molo, the driver of the Sifa Line Company matatu attempted to overtake the trailer before colliding with its back. 

Traffic officials rushed to the scene and towed the vehicles to the Molo police station.

The 24-year-old woman’s body was taken to the Molo sub-county hospital morgue, while five others are still being treated.

This follows another accident on Saturday morning on the Eldoret-Nakuru highway.

Five individuals died and eight others were seriously injured in an early-morning tragedy on Saturday.

The sad tragedy occurred when a 14-seater matatu carrying passengers lost control and crashed with an incoming lorry headed to Nakuru.

According to the Nakuru County Police Commander, four men and one woman have been confirmed deceased, with the injured being transferred to the Nakuru Referral Hospital.

Following the collision, the wreckage of the matatu was towed to the Salgaa Police Station to allow investigators to determine the reason for the tragedy.

The event occurred just a day after three persons were killed and four injured in a similar collision on the Ruaka-Ndenderu Highway in Kiambu County.

According to witnesses, the vehicle lost control and collided with multiple automobiles before rolling over pedestrians on the roadside.

Following the tragedy, a disaster management team was promptly summoned to the location to assist in rescuing people who had become trapped beneath the debris.
