A mother and her child are among six people confirmed dead in a Monday afternoon accident involving Sagal Bus near Barquuqay village, 10km from Modogashe town.
Driver of the bus which left Garissa earlier today (Monday) is said to have lost control due to steering failure.
The bus was on its way to Benane town.
