At least 50 people, including seven children, were killed in a bus crash west of Nairobi, Kenya, on Wednesday, police said.

The bus was traveling from the Kenyan capital to the port city of Kisumu when the driver lost control while going down a steep slope, authorities said. Kericho County Police Commander James Mugera said that authorities believe the driver “lost control of his vehicle.”

President Uhuru Kenyatta posted a message on his Twitter page offering “heartfelt condolences to the families of fellow Kenyans who lost their lives in a tragic road accident at Fort Ternan in Kericho County this morning.” He also wished a “quick recovery” for those who were injured in the crash.
