Elsewhere, seven members of the same family died in a road crash at Salgaa trading centre on the busy Nakuru-Eldoret highway.
The accident at Salgaa occurred at around 2:30 am and involved a personal vehicle that was heading to Kitale, a Greenline matatu and a truck-trailer from Eldoret.
Those who died were a father, his son and daughter, his daughter in law (sons’ wife), and three grandchildren. They were all coming from a relative’s burial in Nyeri.
The personal car the family was traveling in attempted to overtake the bus when it collided head-on with an oncoming trailer.
