At least 52 people have been killed in western Kenya after a truck carrying a shipping container lost control at a busy road junction and ploughed into other vehicles and businesses. AfricaNews reports that the accident took place on Friday evening when the truck “lost control and rammed into eight vehicles, several motorcycles, people who were by the roadside, vendors, and other people who were on other businesses”. Video footage showed the mangled wreckage of multiple vehicles, doors torn off minibuses and motorbikes crushed into chunks of twisted metal.
