An accident that occurred in Nakasongola last night claimed four lives.
The deceased have been identified as Adam Balyejusa, 27; Abdul Kharim Walugembe, 42; Abass Yiga, 45; and an unidentified male adult.
Preliminary findings indicate that a vehicle No. UAQ108W/UAY 227P M/BENZ trailer was heading to Kampala from Gulu, and upon reaching Kikoona Trading Centre, it crossed to the opposite lane and struck a vehicle registered under UBL345A (a Mitsubishi Fuso Fighter) and killed four people on the spot.

The bodies were taken to Nakasongola HCIV mortuary for postmortem examination.
