Double tragedy as Kerugoya accident victim dies in second road crash


An accident victim who was being transported to the Kerugoya Referral Hospital died on the spot after the ambulance transporting him collided with another vehicle before reaching the facility.
Six occupants of the ambulance sustained serious injuries during the Friday evening accident that occurred at the Kwa Mucina section on the Kerugoya –Kutus Road.
The driver of the ambulance, a woman is said to have sustained a broken arm while another person suffered multiple fractures of the legs.
It was reported the deceased was a victim of an earlier accident and had been rushed to a local hospital where his condition worsened leading to the tragic transfer.
County Police Commander Leah Kithei said area traffic officers were investigating what led to the accident.
“Ironically, an accident victim who was being rushed to the hospital died through yet another accident in an ambulance that was transporting him to a health facility,” Kithei said.
It was claimed by a witness that the ambulance was overtaking when another vehicle showed up from the opposite direction leading to the collision.
