Four people were this morning killed in a road accident along the Kampala-Fort Portal road.

Eye witnesses say the passenger taxi number UAU 189F was overloaded with merchandise on top yet it had passengers inside. They claim its overloading could have caused the accident since the Fortportal highway is hilly and could have caused the vehicle to lose balance.

However, according to Tumushabe, the deceased were traveling from Kyenjojo to Kampala in a taxi registration number  UAU 189F that knocked a Fuso Truck, which was being repaired on the roadside. Police has launched a hunt for the driver of the taxi who escaped unhurt.

Lydia Tumushabe, the Rwenzori Region Police Spokesperson has identified the four ,all residents of Kyenjojo town council , as Rogers Basiima, David Sande, Ali Swahaba while the other is yet to be identified. The accident occurred at around 9:00am at Mukonomura in Butunduzi town council, Kyegegwa district.
