At least ten people died on Sunday night in an accident along the Nairobi-Garissa Highway.

Sources said scores were also injured in the accident that involved a truck and a bus that was headed for Wajir. The accident occurred in Tula area near Bangal.

The death toll is expected to rise given the nature of the injuries the victims sustained. The injured were taken to Garissa hospitals.

According to North Eastern regional commissioner Mohamed Birik, the accident happened after the bus rammed onto a stationary truck that was full of cement bags.

“We are investigating the incident. It is unfortunate many have died and others injured,” said Birik.
