NINE PEOPLE DEAD
At least seven people cannot be accounted for after the dawn accident between a lorry and a bus in Emali along the Nairobi- Mombasa highway.
Nine people were killed and at least 20 others seriously injured in the road accident that happened in the morning.
According to witnesses, the bus was speeding in quest to overtake another vehicle when it met head on with the bus where both vehicles burst into flames.
The witnesses were however unable to put out the fire due to insufficient equipment.
Area OCPD Paul Odede mentioned that some of the bodies were burnt beyond recognition and identification is a challenge as the passenger manifest was poorly done.
Bodies have been transferred to Chiromo Funeral Home in Nairobi.
