At least ten people are confirmed dead after a trailer lost control in the busy Webuye – Malaba Highway. The accident took place at the Kaburengu Junction — a known blackspot that has previously claimed several lives.
The Track was heading to Malaba when it lost control and rammed into several 14 seater matatus and killed ten people on the spot according to an eye witness. 14 others were seriously wounded and rushed to Webuye Sub county hospital for treatment.
The trailer then overturned and landed into a ditch after sweeping through a group of traders mostly women selling vegetables.
