The bus owned by Daya Bus Services was heading to Lodwar from Nairobi when the incident occurred at about 8pm.
The driver is said to have lost control after the brakes failed. The bus then rolled off a cliff trapping several passengers including four infants.
Kapenguria OCPD David Wambua confirmed the accident and said the injured passengers have been rushed to the area district hospital.
“Already 55 victims have been rushed to hospital with most of them sustaining serious head, chest and leg injuries,” he said.
The three bodies were retrieved from the wreckage an hour later.
