At least fourteen people have died in a grisly road accident today mourning after a Madina Nairobi-bound bus from Mandera  rammed a stalled lorry in Matuu, Machakos county.

The area police boss Joseph Karanja confirmed that the dead include include 10 men, three women and a child.

Mr Karanja said the incident happened a few minutes after 5am, and that the driver of the truck that had stalled on the road had not placed warning signs (called life savers) to caution other users.

According to police sources at the scene, the bus rammed the truck from behind before losing control and veering off the road.

A video has been going online of how the bus was really damaged as those injured rushed to Matuu level four hospital.
