Driver killed in accident
A truck driver died on the spot on Sunday night after losing control of the lorry he was driving near Awasi Trading Centre along Nairobi – Kisumu Highway while ferrying sugarcane to Kibos Sugar Factory.
The Nyanza Regional Traffic Commandant, Andrew Naibei confirmed that the driver lost control of the vehicle soon after he collected sugarcane from Muhoroni fields at around 7.45pm.
Naibei said the driver was killed as he made a futile attempt to escape death by jumping off truck but was crushed and killed on the spot.
He said the body of the deceased whose identity could not be immediately revealed since the next of kin were yet to be notified was taken to Ahero Sub- county Hospital Mortuary.
The Regional Traffic Boss appealed to motorists plying the busy road to be more careful to avoid further loss of lives.
