Seven people died on Saturday night in yet another grisly road accident involving a matatu and lorry at Makutano along Nakuru-Eldoret Highway.
Rift Valley Traffic Enforcement Officer Arome said the accident happened when the matatu tried to overtake before slamming head-on with an on-coming lorry.
On Monday, 19 people were killed in a freak road accident at Kamukuywa Bridge along the Webuye-Kitale road. Among the dead were nine family members who were travelling to Vihiga from Kitale after attending an unspecified ceremony.
On Tuesday, over 30 people died and scores injured in an accident involving Modern Coast bus and 13 other vehicles at Sachagwan along the same highway.
The accident happened after a truck driver, who was being chased by NTSA, lost control of the vehicle and hit oncoming vehicles, Modern Coast Bus, four Nissan matatus, a truck and several other private vehicles resulting to the deaths.
National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) chief said plans are underway to construct a dual carriageway at Sachang’wan as part of the solution to the current problem.
