Three people have died after a 45-seater minibus collided head-on with a pickup truck on the Tawa-Mbumbuni Road in Makueni County.
The bus was heading towards Mbumbuni while the truck was heading to Tawa.
Mbooni East OCPD Peter Njeru confirmed the three deaths.
He said police were still investigating the accident.
Witnesses, however, claimed that five passengers were killed in the accident.
"The matatu was attempting to overtake a second matatu when it collided with the pickup," an eyewitness, Stephen Kimanthi, told the Nation by phone.
The injured were rushed to Tawa Hospital.
