Woman in Kelvin Kiptum’s car Shocks Kenyans With Unusual Testimony

In the aftermath of the tragic road accident that claimed the life of world marathon record holder Kelvin Kiptum, a survivor has stepped forward to share her account of the moments preceding the crash.

Sharon Chepkurui Kosgei, the lone survivor of the accident, has finally provided her statement to the authorities, shedding light on the events leading up to the devastating collision. Elgeyo Marakwet Police Commander Peter Mulinge revealed that Kosgei’s testimony has been instrumental in ongoing investigations into the incident.

“We recorded Sharon Kosgei’s statement yesterday,” stated Mulinge. “The investigations are still underway, and once concluded, we will make our findings public.”

According to Kosgei’s harrowing account, she witnessed the driver, Mr. Kelvin Kiptum, stepping onto the road just before the accident occurred. Despite her efforts to warn him, she was unable to prevent the tragic outcome.

The incident, which unfolded on the Eldoret-Ravine road in Keiyo South Sub-County, Elgeyo Marakwet County, painted a scene of chaos and desperation. Kosgei, hailing from Metkei in Keiyo South, survived the ordeal that claimed the lives of Kiptum and his Rwandese coach, Garvis Hakizimana.

Following the crash, Kosgei was rushed to Racecourse Hospital and later transferred to Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital (MTRH) in Eldoret, where she received treatment for her injuries.

Medical staff attending to Kosgei reported that she underwent a stitch on her head and sustained bruises on her arm, leading to her eventual discharge from the hospital.

However, the nature of the relationship between Kosgei and the two individuals in the car remains undisclosed by the authorities. The investigation continues as the community mourns the loss of a celebrated athlete and his coach, while seeking answers to the circumstances surrounding the tragic accident.
