A vehicle carrying empty crates of beer was involved in an accident on Wednesday night after the driver tried to evade a speeding probox on Kakuma- Lokichoggio highway.
The lorry that was coming from South Sudan Kapoeta state, lost control and hit the tree before it overturned.
According to the lorry driver Dennis Kimondo , the probox that was heading to Lokichoggio from Kakuma was to blame for the accident. He said that the probox driver left his lane while over-speeding.
”I had to leave the road to save lives of the people he was carrying,” said Dennis Kimondo the Lorry driver.
Kimondo sustained minor injuries from the accident.
This comes days after the County Government and other partners had rolled out the road safety campaign in Turkana County, where drivers were taught on road safety and precautions.
The Probox driver escaped before police arrived in the scene.
