`After a charge carrier loses kinetic energy in a such a collision, the force due to the pd across the material accelerates it until it collides with another positive ion.' I got this from a book, can someone explain this in a simplest way.

That's already a pretty straightforward and simple explanation. Could you tell us which parts you don't understand?

If there is a potential difference then there is an E field. If there is an E field then there is a force. If there is an unbalanced force then there is an acceleration.
