Local officials said the accident happened at 03:30am (0:00 GMT), and the bus was speeding and in the wrong lane.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has ranked Kenya as one of the world’s worst countries for road safety.

Police believe over 100 people have died in the same area on the Nakuru-Eldoret highway in recent weeks.

The bus was reportedly carrying 46 passengers to Nairobi from the western town of Busia when the accident happened.

The injured people have been rushed to Molo Sub-County Hospital and the Nakuru Level Five Hospital.

Both vehicles’ drivers are said to be among the dead, with the youngest victim reportedly a three-year-old child.

Rescue operations are still ongoing.
