Kenya: Driver Killed in Bus Crash in Malindi
By Charles Lwanga
A driver died after his bus rammed into a lorry along the Malindi-Kilifi road on Wednesday night.
Malindi police boss Matawa Muchangi said four passengers were injured and rushed to hospital.
The driver died on the spot.
“The bus was carrying 45 passengers and the driver was speeding when he rammed into a lorry,” said Mr Muchangi.
An eye witness said the lorry had stopped on the road after it was involved in an accident with a tuk tuk.
“The lorry and tuk tuk drivers were waiting for traffic police when the second accident happened,” Josephat Ng’ang’a said.
Benson Orombo, the conductor of the bus, said the driver was overtaking a lorry when an oncoming lorry blocked the way causing the driver to hit the stalled lorry.
About 40 passengers cancelled their journey to Nairobi following the accident.
