At least 23 passengers sustain serious injuries in Link bus accident

23 people are nursing wounds at Mubende General Hospital following an accident involving a Link Bus which occurred at Gwanika along the Fort Portal-Kampala Highway.

The incident occurred at about 2:00 am on Tuesday morning when a bus belonging to Link Bus Company registration number UBF 967K which was coming from Bwera in Kasese district and heading to Kampala lost control and overturned.
According to Amos Atamba a traffic police officer at Mubende Police Station, the accident is suspected to have been caused by smoke from a plywood factory in Nabbingola. He noted that the smoke had covered the road and the driver tried to avoid a head-on collision with an oncoming truck, but the bus overturned.

The passengers sustained serious injuries and were rushed to Mubende Hospital and others to private health facilities for treatment.

Police have since identified some of the injured as Precious Tumwinyare, Wilson Asaba, Walter Muhindo, Cissy Isingoma, Eden Katungo, Denis Bwambale, Kennedy Mumbere, Gerald Byomuhamgi, and Boniface Babala.

Others are Hope Abraham, Amon Akugizibwe, Angel Birungi, Esther Kavira, Musa Farouk, Kombi Mugoya and Bwambale Celestine.
