Three people were on Sunday seriously injured after a tanker hit a matatu they were travelling in on the busy Kisumu-Busia road.

Reports on Citizen Digital indicate that the accident could have resulted due to brake failure on the side of the tanker. 

The accident was confirmed by Nyanza Regional Traffic boss Andrew Naibei. 

According to Naibei, the trailer hit the bus from behind. Among those injured were the driver and two passengers seated on the front seats.

The injured passengers were taken to the Kisumu County hospital where they are recuperating 

The accident comes barely a month after three people died and others injured in a grisly accident along the Kisumu-Kakamega road accident.

Reports indicate that the freaky accident could have been due to brake failure.

Area Police boss Meshak Kiptum labelled the area a black spot, called upon drivers to take extra caution and slow down when approaching the area.
