the ill-fated bus lies on its side

Two people died and fifty five others sustained injuries after a bus they were traveling in overturned in lagbor area in Wajir County.

Most of the injured are in stable condition but five cases were described as serious by medics at Wajir County referral hospital where the injured were rushed immediately after the accident.

Relatives and friends thronged the hospital giving medics hard time to attend to the injured.

The driver of the Sabrin bus which was heading to Wajir from Nairobi is said to have lost control of the vehicle after one of its front tyres burst.

“The bus veered off the road after a tyre burst, it rolled several times before resting on its side” a survivor of the accident told Nepjournal.

We send our condolences to the families of the deceased and wish the injured quick recovery!
