Two people escaped death by a whisker after a trailer they were traveling in lost control and overturned near the Londiani junction on the Kericho-Nakuru highway.
The truck which was ferrying bags of cement from Nakuru General Directions crashed near Londiani junction, with preliminary investigations pointing to brake failure.
Members of the public seized the opportunity to loot the cement consignment.
The accident caused a heavy traffic snarl-up stretching over 4kms on the both stretches of the highway.
Police officers from Londiani are currently at the scene.
