The fuel tanker which overturned at Silanga area along Olkalou- Ndundori road yesterday carrying 30,000 litres of super petrol
A fuel tanker yesterday rolled as it was negotiating a corner at Silanga on the Ndundori-Ol Kalou road.
The tanker, which was travelling at a high speed, spilled most of its cargo by the roadside.
However, residents who gathered at the scene kept their distance and gave police officers an easy time in controlling the crowd.
The driver and his turnboy escaped with minor injuries and were taken to JM Memorial Hospital in Ol Kalou where they were treated and discharged.
Rurii ward MCA Peter Wahome praised the security officers for their swift response and the discipline displayed by the residents at the scene.
He urged the government, through the Ministry of Roads, to put up signs and guard rails along the road, which he said had been removed by scrap metal dealers.
Wahome called for tough measures against scrap metal dealers who vandalise road signs and guard rails.
