Eight soldiers from the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) are nursing injuries at the Defence Forces Memorial Hospital after a truck they were traveling in overtuned on the Nairobi-Kangundo Highway.
Confirming the Wednesday accident, Matungulu OCPD Isaac Thuranira said the truck, en route to Kangundo from Nairobi, was carrying 18 soldiers.
10 soldiers escaped unhurt during the accident.
The driver of the truck is said to have lost control of the vehicle before it veered off the road.
Thuranira said investigations are underway to establish the cause of the accident.
The accident comes a month after a soldier was crushed to death and three others seriously injured when their vehicle overturned at Riandira on Makutano-Sagana Road in Kirinyaga County.
