Vastavam web: Thirty people were killed and 16 injured early this morning in a head-on collision between a bus and a lorry on a road in central Kenya, police said.”We have 30 dead,” said Rift Valley traffic police chief Zero Arome of the 3am (local time) accident close to Nakuru town. “All the bodies have been removed from the wreckage and injured people taken to hospital.” Arome said the drivers of both vehicles were among the dead, as well as a three-year-old child, while the injured had been taken to a Nakuru hospital.

One survivor, speaking from his hospital bed, said he had been asleep at the back of the bus when the collision happened.”All I heard was a loud bang and screams from all over,” he said. “I was seated at the back and was helped out after some time because my legs were stuck. It is by the grace of God that I am alive. I saw many people dead and their bodies mutilated.”
