Kenyan media is reporting the death of at least 50 people after a bus they were traveling in overturned on Wednesday.
The bus was traveling from Kenya’s capital Nairobi to the western city of Kisumu, police say.
Local media Daily Nation reports that the bus veered off the road while heading towards a steep slope.
The bus according to reports “then hit a guard rail, rolled over and plunged down about 20 metres, landing on a rocky farm”.
According to police, the death toll could increase since many passengers are still trapped in the wreckage.
An eyewitness told Daily Nation that he “heard a long hooting sound, then a screech that was followed by a bang and loud screams from passengers.”
Kenya’s police chief Joseph Boinnet told Capital FM radio that “It is unfortunate that we have lost 51 people.”
