Trans Nzoia Governor Patrick Khaemba’s bodyguard is among the eight people who survived the Friday morning accident at Sobea on the Nakuru-Eldoret highway.
However, the police officer sustained serious injuries and is recuperating at the Nakuru Level Five Hospital.
Mr Vincent Otieno alias Ramram, who is part of the governor’s security detail, suffered hand and leg fractures during the crash.
While recalling the last moments before the accident, Mr Otieno said the vehicle left Kitale for Nairobi at around 2am on Friday morning.
He said the driver who was assigned to drive them was called from another parked vehicle, where he was taking a siesta.
