The incident follows a head-on collision between two buses. The accident involved Volcano bus reg. no. RAD CO 798B that was coming from Rwanda and Oxygen bus reg. no. KCU 054L from Kenya through Uganda to Kigali, according to Police.

According to preliminary Police findings, the accident occurred at 4am near Satellite Holiday Resort, two kilometers from Muhanga trading center while heading to Mbarara.
