A three year old child who escaped death in the Sunday night accident on the Eldoret-Nakuru highway in which seven people died, is stranded at the Nakuru Level Five Hospital.

The hospital management says it has not traced her parents and cannot confirm whether they were among those who died.

The hospital is now calling on anyone with information regarding the child or her parents to come forward.

The girl is among the survivors of the Sunday accident at Ngata Bridge on the Nakuru-Eldoret highway involving a matatu and a truck.

Ms Jennifer Mathenge, the nurse in charge of ward 14, where the girl is admitted, said she was brought in by good Samaritans after the accident.

“I got information that both parents to the minor were travelling with her in the Public Service Vehicle that was involved in the accident at the Ngata Bridge,” she said.

The minor identified as Angela Chisis said her mother’s name is Stella Ebei but could only recall one name for the father, whom she said is called Matara.
