36 people among them 3 children are feared dead after an accident on Sunday morning at the Migaa blackspot on the Nakuru-Eldoret Highway.

The accident occurred 10 kilometres from the infamous Salgaa blackspot at 3 am involving a Nairobi-bound bus and a trailer. The bus belonging to Matunda Sacco is said to have been traveling from Busia and was speeding on the wrong lane causing it to ram into the trailer leaving over 30 people dead.

The injured were rushed to Molo Sub-County Hospital and the Nakuru Level Five Hospital while those who perished were taken to Nakuru County mortuary.
