At least three individuals were injured in a Masaka traffic collision involving a Global bus with the registration number UAX 283A and a Canter Diana with the registration number UBJ 648J.
The accident occurred at 1040 hours on Friday, according to the PRO Traffic and Road Safety ASP Faridah Nampiima.
“The Canter was driving from Masaka to Kampala, and the global bus was moving from Kampala to Mbarara.” The bus skidded off the road and overturned while giving way to a canter that was overtaking dangerously, hurting three persons,” Nampiima said.
By press time, the injured had been taken to neighboring clinics for first aid, according to the Traffic Police PRO.
By the time this report was written, information on the number of passengers on board was still scarce.
During the inquiry into the accident, police officers on the scene seized the canter and detained the driver.
Police will provide more information in due course, according to Nampiima.
