3 people have died following a grisly road accident along the Eldoret-Webuye highway.

The accident happened at Lwandeti Junction where a trailer fell on 7 people, killing one on the spot.

The six others are reportedly pressed to the ground by the trailer and rescue operations are ongoing.

The incident came days after 8 people died in an accident on the same road while heading to Nairobi.

This was after a 2NK shuttle hit the back of a trailer that had been packed slightly on the road.

Reports indicate that the trailer had experienced a breakdown and the driver could not manage to park it besides the road.

The accident led to NTSA summoning all 2NK vehicles for inspection even as the Authority said the shuttle company was not licensed to operate in the route.

A report released last week indicates that 60 people had already been killed in road accidents in 2022 just within the first week.

The numbers are a wake-up call for motorists to adhere to rules and regulations and also be cautious while on the road.
