Two people died after they were involved in a grisly accident at Siyiapei area along the Narok- Maai Mahiu road.
Confirming the 7.30 am accident, Narok North Sub County police commander Frederick Siundu said the two were driving in a red Toyota wish vehicle that lost control and rolled several times.
“The vehicle had the driver and one person on board at the time of the accident and was carrying two bags of sacks. The vehicle was moving towards the Narok town side,” he said.
He said the vehicle could have been moving at a high speed because the two people who were on board were thrown nearly two hundred meters away from the point where the vehicle wreckage was.
“The vehicle did not collide with any other vehicle, and it is clear that the driver was unable to control the vehicle because it was moving at a high speed owing to the fact that the bodies of the driver and his one occupant had been thrown far,” he observed.
The police boss lamented that the two deceased are young men aged below 35 years old who could not have died if they were vigilant on the road.
“I condole with the families that have lost their loved ones. The two young men had a bright future and could have helped in building the nation,” he said.
Siundu warned motorists against over speeding on the highway that is very smooth and easily attracts motorists to speed.
At the same time, the police commander warned residents against dealing with charcoal saying the business was illegal in the country.
The bodies of the deceased were moved to the Narok County Referral hospital for preservation awaiting postmortem as the vehicle wreckage was towed to the Narok town police station.
