Five people died when a motorcycle they were riding on collided with a vehicle near Museno market along the Kakamega-Kisumu road on Thursday night.

The vehicle, a Probox was headed to Kakamega town while those on the motorcycle were going home.

The western region traffic police boss Mr Geoffrey Njogu said the rider is reported to have left his lane and collided with the oncoming vehicle.

Bodies of the rider and passengers were thrown into different directions after the 10pm accident.

Mr Njogu said the rider could have lost control of the motorcycle because of the number of passengers he was carrying.

DIFFICULT TO NAVIGATE

“If you are carrying four passengers on a motorcycle, that makes it very difficult to navigate and control bike. This could have contributed to the accident,” said Mr Njogu.

The driver of the vehicle sustained injuries and was admitted at the St Elizabeth Mission hospital Mukumu.

“Our preliminary investigations indicate that the rider ws speeding from the direction of Khayega market, carrying four passengers and when he got to Museno veered from his lane and crashed into the vehicle from opposite direction,” said Mr Njogu.

Villagers blocked the road and attempted to burn the vehicle but police officers at the scene intervened and restored calm.

Mr Njogu asked motorists and boda boda riders to observe traffic regulations at all times to minimise road carnage.
