Two road builders died in Elgeiyo Marakwet County when the lorry they were travelling in overturned at Kamuseny on the way to Moiben, Elgeiyo Marakwet.
16 others were injured during the same incident. The builders were traveling from Kachibora to a site in Koitugum.
County Police Commander John Mwinzi said that in addition to the builders, the truck was ferrying sand too, a factor which may have led to the truck being overloaded and breaking down.
The injured were treated at the Kitale County Referral Hospital. 10 were discharged and six were admitted into the hospital.
