Kenya lorry crash: Dozens killed after truck loses control

At least 48 people have been killed in a road accident at a busy junction in Kenya, police and witnesses say.

It happened after a lorry carrying a shipping container lost control at Londiani Junction, near the western town of Kericho, local media report.

Police commander Geoffrey Mayek said 30 others were seriously injured but added the number “could be more”.

He also raised concerns that “one or two” people could still be trapped underneath the overturned vehicle.

Tom Mboya Odero, another regional police commander, was quoted by AFP news agency as saying the lorry travelling towards Kericho “lost control and rammed into eight vehicles, several motorcycles, people who were by the roadside, vendors, and other people who were on other businesses”.

Eye witnesses told Kenyan media the driver had been trying to avoid a bus that had broken down on the road.

Kenyan president William Ruto said he had been distressed to hear that some of those killed were “young people with a promising future and business people who were on their daily chores”.

“We urge motorists to be extra cautious on roads, especially now when we are experiencing heavy rainfall,” Mr Ruto added in a tweet.
