Obama's grandmother injured in car accident
The relative says the vehicle lost control and rolled as the driver attempted to overtake a truck near the Kisumu airport. He asked not to be named as he isn't authorized to speak for the family. She has reportedly gone through some tests and is recovering well from the shock.
Sarah Obama is the second wife of Obama's paternal grandfather. Obama referred to her as "Granny" in his memoir, "Dreams from My Father." In a 2008 interview Sarah Obama said they are close, although they have to speak through an interpreter.
