An accident along the Eldoret-Webuye road has apparently claimed 6 lives.
The horrid Wednesday evening incident involved a truck and a 14-seater North Rift Sacco matatu.
Witness accounts indicate that the truck driver lost control and collided head on with the matatu killing the passengers including the driver.
