The driver whose bus  rammed into a stationary trailer and killed 14 people in Matuu yesterday morning has turned himself to the police.

He had disappeared into the thin air immediately after the accident that left 27 others with serious injuries.

He is set to appear in court this morning to face various charges.

Those killed include 13 adults and a child, while more than 10 others have been taken to Matuu Level Four Hospital.

According to Yatta police boss Njoroge Karanja, the accident occurred when the bus heading to Nairobi from Mandera rammed into a stationary truck.
