The accident caused a heavy traffic jam along the busy highway with police moving in to help starnded motorists.

The Friday evening accident happened just a few hours after 13 people perished in a grisly road accident along Kisumu–Kericho Highway at Awasi, Kisumu County.

Reports indicate that the accident occurred after an Eldoret express bus collided head on with a trailer at Awasi. The bus was headed to Nairobi.

Those injured injured in the accident were rushed to Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital and Hope Medical Hospital. Bodies of the deceased have been moved to Ahero Hospital Mortuary.
