Eight people have been confirmed dead in a grisly road accident that occurred yesterday on the Kisii-Kilgoris road at Etora area.

The Friday night incident is said to have involved three cars among them a Noah,a saloon car and a canter.

All the occupants in the Noah perished on the spot while three passengers in the canter survived with serious injuries and were rushed to the Kisii Level Six Hospital.

The accident happened when the 7-seater Noah attempted to overtake the canter before it collided head on with the oncoming saloon car.

The driver of the lorry lost control and hit the Noah leaving a mangled wreckage of it.

A majority of the deceased from the Noah are believed to be students from Kenyatta University who were heading to an All White Party in Kisii town.
