At least four people have been confirmed dead and scores nursing serious injuries after they were involved in a road accident on Monday at Sondu on the border of Kisumu and Kisii counties.

The matatu was travelling from Nyakach to Kisumu when the driver lost control as he tried to negotiate a bent. The van veered off the road and plunged into a roadside gulley at about 8.40am, the police said.

Nyanza Regional Traffic Enforcement Officer Andrew Naibei said he could not tell the number of casualties or even the number of passengers on board at the time of the crash.

The four bodies were taken to Nyakach Sub County Hospital Mortuary.

The vehicle was badly damaged as it had huge dents, damaged front and flat front tyres.
