Nine people on Sunday sustained injuries when the vehicle they were travelling in was involved in an accident at the Migaa blackspot on the Nakuru-Eldoret Highway.
It is reported the 14-seater matatu was headed to Nairobi from Eldoret before the accident.
Eye witnesses say that the driver lost control of the vehicle before it veered off the road and hit a fence.
The injured passengers were moved to the Nakuru Level Five Hospital for treatment.
“The driver was speeding to beat curfew hours and unfortunately he lost the control injuring nine people,” said an eye witness.
