The accident reportedly occurred near Brooke Trading Center on the Kericho-Nakuru highway.
On another accident, 8 people died in Bungoma after the Modern Coast bus collided with the matatu they were traveling in.
A bizarre incident in October last year saw the Modern Coast bus burst into flames in Samburu Kwale county.
However, the police reported that they were investigating the incident though no fatalities recorded.
The incidents have resulted in The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) suspending the operational license of the buses.

The NTSA made the announcement after the two Modern Coast buses involved in an accident killing 7 people with several sustaining injuries.
“The company’s access to the NTSA portal has been deactivated to limit any activities on their 88 vehicles, as the investigation continues,” said new NTSA Director General George Njao in a statement.
“The National Police has been advised to impound any of their vehicles from operating contrary to this suspension.”
Police officers were thus forced to storm into certain Modern Coast booking offices to control passengers who were demanding refunds for the payments
