Four people died on Saturday and several others injured after an accident at Kaburengu bridge along Webuye Eldoret highway.

The accident occurred after a truck collied with a probox before bursting into flames, burning several other cars at the scene of the crash.

Witnesses said those who died were burnt beyond recognition.

“Had the fire engines arrive at the scene early, maybe we could have saved more lives,” a witness recounted.

Bungoma East traffic boss Idris Halkaalno confirmed the incident saying the truck was en route to Uganda from Mombasa when the driver lost control.

“It is unfortunate that we lost four people during the incident with others still undergoing treatment at the Webuye hospital,” he said.
