Kenya bus crash kills at least 40

BY: The BBC

At least 40 people have been killed after a bus travelling from the Kenyan capital Nairobi to Kisumu, in the west, veered off the road, police say.

Many reportedly died at the scene of the accident and police fear the death toll may rise with the possibility of passengers trapped in the wreckage.

"The roof of the bus was ripped off," an official said.

Police said the driver had lost control and plunged down a slope at a notorious accident black spot.

Local radio station Midnimo tweeted an image of an overturned vehicle that looked severely damaged.
