Two-time Olympic 800m champion and world record holder David Rudisha is nursing minor injuries after his car was involved in an accident along the Kisii-Keroka highway, few kilometres from Keroka town.
According to reports, Rudisha was driving his V8 engine Toyota Sunday morning when its tyre burst hitting an Ena Coach bus from behind at around.
None of the bus passengers sustained injuries during the 2a.m incident.
Rudisha’s friend and neighbour, Stephen Ole Marai, told the press that the athlete was treated at a hospital in Keroka and later moved to Kilgoris Sub-County Hospital.
He, however, noted that the athlete is out of danger.
Rudisha hails from Kilgoris in Narok County.
“Rudisha is okay, but he is nursing minor injuries. We are leaving Kilgoris to Keroka Police Station now where he is coming to meet the police,” said Ole Marai.
The wreckage of Rudisha’s car was towed to Keroka Police Station.
