KAMPALA- At least sixteen people sustained severe injuries following an accident that involved three vehicles.

The accident occurred, on Wednesday morning, near Lugogo Cricket Oval, along Jinja-Kampala Road.

 

One of the survivors, identified as Peter Ngobi, a resident of Buyende, attributes the accident to break failure of the taxi.

 

Ngobi says that as it approached the streetlight at Shoprite, the taxi registration number UBB 978N, in which he was traveling, coming from Kampala, heading towards Jinja, rammed into a Pick-Up registration number UG 2576, which also knocked another Isuzu truck that was loaded with building maxi pans.

Minutes later, an army escort patrol car arrived at the scene and helped take the victims to Naguru Hospital for treatment.
