At least four people were injured Wednesday mid-morning following a road accident that involved two trucks and a Nissan Matatu at Kaburengu trading center along Eldoret -Webuye highway in Matete Sub County Kakamega County.

Confirming the incident, Kivaywa Sub Location assistant chief Ann Oyule said the accident occurred after the driver of a truck that was transporting lime from the Kenyan Coast to a neighboring country lost control after it failed brakes while descending the steep Chimoi slope towards Webuye.

She said the truck hit a Nissan Matatu that was coming from the opposite side throwing it in a ditch before it proceeded and hit another truck that was also approaching from the opposite direction.
