In Business On

Traffic flow was paralyzed for more than two hours along the Kampala-Jinja road near Lugogo junction after a speeding Canter truck veered off the road and rammed into several other vehicles during the morning downpour.

The truck rammed into a Toyota Noah, registration number UAW 320Q and a taxi (UBB 938B) loaded with passengers leaving several passengers with multiple injuries.
Edward Kyeyune, one of the affected drivers said that the accident happened at around 6:30am when the truck swerved from the Lugogo Cricket Oval side hitting a number of Kampala-bound vehicles.

“I saw a Canter coming at a high speed. It ‘jumped’ the gardens in the middle and it hit our vehicle. I was with one person and she was hurt,” Kyeyune said.

Spear Motors junction traffic officer Modest Matsiko said injured occupants from a taxi and other vehicles were rushed to hospital. Kampala Metropolitan Police commander Moses Kafeero, had early issued a brief statement advising drivers using Jinja road to use alternative routes.
