Kinyua said the victims are believed to be from the same family, and the seven survivors were taken to the local health center, treated and discharged.

“The fatal road accident occurred on Sunday at 1:00 a.m. We suspect the driver was tired at the time of the accident because he had driven for long and it was heavily raining,” said Kinyua after visiting the scene.

She said the driver might have lost control of the vehicle, consequently plunging into River Nyakabai while it was making a turn in a sharp bend.

Kinyua said rescue mission is underway in search of an infant who is still trapped in the bus.

The latest accident came after heavy rains pounding several parts of the East African nation more than a month ago.
