Two people have died on the spot while another one has been rushed to the hospital in a critical condition after a truck loaded with Sugarcane veered off and fell from the 15m high Nyamasaria flyover along Kisumu -Nairobi highway.
It is reported that the truck was being driven on a high speed and on reaching the fly over, it lost control and crashed on other motorists next to the fly over.
Eye witness confirmed to Ghetto Radio News that the truck driver and his conductor lost their lives while some who were next to the road managed to escape the accident.
“The accident occured today at around midday when a truck loaded with sugarcane was being driven at a high speed lost control, hit the fly over wall and fell on other motorists. The driver and the conductor died on the spot while one person was rushed to the hospital,” explained Isack Rabari.
Rabari stated that the place is a black spot adding that another motorist fell from the oflyover last week.
In the past years almost three sugarcane trailers fell from the fly over claiming lives.
“This place is a black spot , just last week a motorist fell from the same fly over. In the past years, three trucks ferrying Sugarcane from the same company claimed lives on the same spot,” he added.
Rabari further warned road users to be careful particularly at that place as it is a sharp corner.
The bodies were taken to Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital.
The truck have been removed from the road as the police commence investigations on the incident.
