Nairobi: At least 13 people have died in Kenya while many more have been injured after a fuel tank exploded late Saturday.
According to the police, the truck collided with another vehicle and overturned on the busy highway near Malanga, some 315 kilometers (196 miles) northwest of Nairobi.
Residents in the area rushed to the crash site with jerrycans to collect the leaking fuel.
A local police chief in Siaya County, Charles Chacha, said the other vehicle was ferrying 20 tons of milk.
"The tanker hit the vehicle on the right rear side. As a result of the impact, it overturned on the extreme left side of the road,” he said.
