One person died after a pick- up he was boarding rolled at Kitalakapel area on Kacheliba Makutano road in West Pokot County.
Confirming the incident the area county base Commander Elijah Teeka said he suspected that the vehicle which was coming from Kacheliba heading to Makutano was over speeding.
He said the double cabin pick up had three occupants on board, and one person died after it rolled several times and the other two disappeared from the scene.
“After the accident the driver and one of the passengers narrowly escaped. We don’t know where they ran to, they are in hide out. They have not come at the police station to report the accident. One of the passengers died on the spot,” he said.
He said they have launched a search for the two who escaped and once caught they will be taken to court, saying the incident occurred yesterday evening.
