According to ASP Michael Kananura, the Traffic Police spokesperson, a Fuso Box body registration number UBD 520H, which was carrying maize, lost control at the Namboole roundabout and rammed into 13 vehicles and two motorcycles.

“According to initial reports from our first responders, the driver of the truck transporting maize from Naalya to Namboole lost control at the roundabout at around 7:00 p.m., failed to brake, and rammed with 13 cars and two motorcycles, resulting in the loss of two lives,” Kananura said.

The deceased persons include one female passenger who was on a motorcycle and a male who was not yet to be identified by press time.
