Julius Yego narrowly escapes death in an accident

The Kenyan athlete, Javelin star, and You Tube hero, Julius Yego , narrowly escaped unhurt in a grisly road accident involving his recently acquired car with a truck.

The Olympic silver medallist and world men Javelin champion confirmed that he was fine after being rushed to Eldoret’s Mediheal Hospital.

“I would have been past tense, there is this guy who was driving a trailer and he suddenly made a U-turn in the middle of the road. I slammed so hard on the brakes and I thought I had broken my leg,” Yego said thanking God.

His Toyota Prado 4×4 vehicle was totally destroyed leaving no hopes for life from the inside, but God is grateful, though Yego feared of broken bones, he managed to escape safely.

“God is living and great!am ok my people ! Can’t believe am alive!@mungu yupo (God exists)!!am in stable condition!” Yego posted.

 “The accident happened in Eldoret, along Kapsoya Road near Equity Bank but he is okay. He was rushed to Medihill and found to be fine. The car was very new and the vehicle has been towed but the sight was bad.

“If he had a passenger, they would be no more. He was luckily driving alone but the vehicle is now a write off,”  Asbel Kiprop, who rushed to the scene after the Yego horror smash said.
