According to eyewitnesses, the lorry was heading down Kanyakine from Nkubu when it lost control at the steep hill a few meters away from the Ntharene Market and collided head-on with the school bus.

"The bus driver who was taking some pupils to a school in Kanyakine had already stopped but it was too late. The two drivers died on the spot," she said.
