The Luwero District police officer in charge of traffic, Willy Abahe said the speeding ambulance was rushing an accident victim from Nakasongola District to Mulago hospital in Kampala when it knocked dead the four who were riding on one motorbike.

He identified the dead teenagers as Bonny Senyonga 19, Zziwa Makanga 19, and their two girl friends: Mango Nakate 15 and Mwajjuma Namuddu 15.

The driver of the ambulance, Peter Magezi   who was interrogated at Luweero police station on Friday morning, said the motor bike on which the four were riding, abruptly turned into the middle of the road as they were branching to the night club.
