Global bus carrying passengers overturned today as it was enroute to Mpigi that’s along the Kampala Masaka road highway.
Some passengers have been brutally injured with the crash since many revelers said it turned over and over several times.
The accident occurred at Nabyewanga-Lwera along Kampala-Masaka highway involving Global bus REG No. UAX 283A & Canter Diana REG No. UBJ 648J.
The accident could have been caused by the slippery road surface since it was during a morning drizzle according to one of the eye witnesses.
“The accident which occurred at around 1040hrs today morning involved a global bus registration number UAX 283A which was traveling from Kampala to Mbarara and a Canter Diana registration number UBJ 648J that was coming from Masaka to Kampala,” said Nampiima in a statement.
She added, “In the process of giving way to the canter, which was overtaking recklessly, the bus swerved off-road and overturned, injuring three people.” She said that the victims had been rushed to nearby clinics for first aid treatment. Also, police officers impounded the canter and arrested the driver.
It has been noticed that many accidents occur on the Kampala Masaka highway that brings many queries on why its always only that route. Could it be due to bad construction or over speeding cars? The answer hasn’t yet been found but answers need to be given.
Many people lose lives due to this and hope the police and traffic officers are always ensuring that accidents are minimized.
