Trailer that caused an accident along the Webuye Eldoret highway killing  several traders

A nasty accident along the Webuye-Eldoret highway on Monday claimed the lives of several people.

The accident was caused by a trailer which veered off the road and ran over a number of roadside traders and their wares at Kaburengu centre.

According to former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale and Navakholo MP Emmanuel Wangwe, twelve people perished in the accident.

Photos of the gory scene also showed a 14-seater matatu and a number of motor cycles which had been hit by the trailer before it landed on its side.

The Kaburengu interchange is a well-known black spot in the area.
