Nairobi - At least 37 people have been killed in a bus crash
west of the Kenya capital Nairobi, police said Thursday.
"It is a horrible scene. Bodies are strewn all
over," traffic police official Samuel Kimaru said by telephone from the
scene near the town of Narok.
"Of the dead, 33 are adults while four are
children," Kimaru said. "It is quite disturbing."
The bus was travelling from Nairobi to Homa Bay on the banks
of Lake Victoria.
It was about halfway into the journey when it veered off the
road and plunged into a valley, rolling over several times.
"It is difficult to tell exactly what happened but all
indications point to speeding and possibly overloading," the police
"We are having a difficult time recovering the bodies
because this place is hilly and bushy."
"We've dozens others injured and we are not certain how
many because they were taken to various hospitals... we have officers checking
with the hospitals," Kimaru said.
