A trailer and a saloon car went up in flames along Ahero Katito road leaving occupants of the car with injuries.
According to Nyando OCPD Leonard Matete, the car rammed into the trailer that was making a U- turn on the road.
Matete says as a result, the two vehicles caught fire as the driver of the trailer escaped unhurt.
Three occupants of the car were rescued and taken to Ahero sub county hospital where they are admitted with a number of injuries.
Matete says fire fighters from Kisumu County Government arrived later when the two vehicles had completely burnt.
The fire was later extinguished and the burnt vehicles towed to Ahero police station pending further probe.
The driver of the trailer escaped from the scene of the accident.
