Four people died after a matatu rammed into a cane trailer in Musembe on the Eldoret-Webuye highway on Sunday morning.
Ten others were seriously injured during the 5.45am accident, according to witnesses.
The driver of the matatu, which was travelling from Bungoma to Nairobi, lost control of the vehicle and veered off the road, ramming the stationary cane trailer from behind.
The trailer is said to have been parked and was picking up casuals for the day's work.
Three passengers of the matatu died on the spot while a fourth one succumbed as he was being rushed to hospital.
The injured, including the driver of the matatu who is said to have sustained serious injuries, were taken to Lumakanda and Webuye hospitals in Bungoma and Kakamega counties respectively.
The bodies were taken to Kimbilio Funeral Home in Lugari, Bungoma county.
The accident happened a few months after eight people died at the same place after a matatu rammed into yet another stationary cane trailer.
Residents want speed bumps erected on the road to reduce the growing loss of lives on the spot.
