One person died instantly and two others who were critically injured rushed to Isiolo referral hospital.
The angry residents started to throw stones at the army lorry hence forcing Administration police officers who were guarding a nearby bank to intervene by shooting in the air to save the driver who was still in the vehicle.

Traffic police officers who came to clear the scene had to be guarded by their anti-riot counterparts fearing to be attacked by rowdy youth who accused the KDF driver for the cause of accident and death of the young man who was riding the motorbike.
