At least 2 people have died and four remain in hospital with life-threatening injuries after 4 cars and 1 motorcycle collided in Bwebajja along Entebbe Road on Friday.
The five vehicles involved in the crash include a yellow Fuso Fighter Truck UAW 869K, a white Isuzu Forward Truck UAJ 907D, a blue matatu UAW 356J, a white matatu UAS 654G and a bajaj boxer motorcycle UEN 738X.
According to eyewitnesses the heavily loaded trucks collided into each other after the driver of the blue matatu tried to make a U-turn near the Bwebajja Craft stage causing breaks to fail.
And knocked another matatu off the road, and ran into 2 hawkers who died on their way to the hospital, leaving the drivers of the trucks and their passengers in life-threatening conditions.
