Three people including a school girl died and five other pupils were injured after a lorry rammed into Kamiguru Education Centre bus at Ntharene market in Meru.

Reports indicate that the lorry ferrying sand towards Nkubu was speeding when the driver lost control and hit the bus that is said to have stopped to give way killing the trio including the two drivers on the spot.

The injured pupils and a teacher were rushed to Consolata Mission Hospital for treatment.

Residents have called for expansion of the road that they said was narrow at the spot where several accidents have happened in the past.
