A father is mourning the loss of his son following a morning accident along the Nakuru-Nairobi highway.

The four year old boy was hit by a bus on its way to Western from Mombasa. The accident took place near Fly-Over trading center in Magumu Kinangop.

The deceased was trying to cross the road. His father was waiting for him on the other side of the road.

Eye witnesses say the bus lost control, noting that there is little the driver could have done as the boy died on the spot due to the impact.

“The accident happened so fast with the bus missing other vehicles narrowly after the driver lost control but the passengers were not injured,” a witness said.

Bus occupants escaped unhurt.

The boy’s remains were transferred to Naivasha Mortuary.
