Auto crash kills 24 in Kenya
A passenger bus crashed into a tanker ferrying cooking oil around mid night on Monday, in the Kibwezi area, along the main highway connecting Kenya's capital, Nairobi, and the port city of Mombasa.
The bus driver was trying to overtake another vehicle but collided with the oncoming tanker truck, Kibwezi police chief told reporters.
"Twenty adults and three children died on the spot, while one adult died later in hospital," He said.
The bus was heading to Mombasa from Nairobi and most of the passengers were families returning from Easter festivities and students preparing for the reopening of schools after holidays.
Another 19 people were injured in the crash.
