6 people lose their lives after a head on collision accident along Eldoret-Nakuru highway

Six people died on Monday in a grisly collision on the Eldoret- Nakuru road, with several others sustaining serious injuries. 

The incident occurred around 1500 hours in the Rapture area, about 15 kilometres east of the Timboroa police station. 

The collision involved a Mercedes-Benz Actros trailer and a Toyota Hiace matatu from the 3NT Sacco fleet. 

According to the police report, the truck, driven by an unidentified individual, was on its way to Nakuru when the driver lost control. 

The trailer swerved into the opposite lane, colliding with an oncoming matatu carrying 16 passengers to Eldoret.

Six passengers in the matatu died on the spot, and an unknown number of others were seriously injured.

The injured were rushed to Burnt Forest Sub-County Hospital for immediate treatment. 

Meanwhile, the bodies were moved to the mortuary at Eldama Ravine Sub-County Hospital, where they are awaiting postmortem examination.
