West News Wire: After a university bus and a passenger car collided on Thursday in Kenya, west of the city, fourteen people, including students, died.
According to the police, 12 individuals passed away immediately and two more died en route to the hospital.
According to Rift Valley Police Chief Tom Odera, the bus carried 30 passengers, so the death toll may increase.
The bus’s driver lost control, struck an approaching car, and rolled the bus into a ditch as it traveled from Nairobi, the capital, to Nakuru town.
Road mishaps frequently occur in Kenya. In the past, traffic cops have taken harsh measures against speeding and intoxicated drivers.
Last week, the National Transport and Safety Authority said that 974 people had died in road crashes across the country since January. The authority has been running a road safety campaign urging motorists to exercise caution especially in the ongoing rainy season.
