At least 20 people were Wednesday morning seriously injured after two Rwanda passenger buses collided head-on along the Ntungamo-Kabale Road in Ntungamo District in Uganda, local reports have said.
The accident at Katinda Bridge, about 12 Km from Ntungamo Town, involved an oncoming Trinity company bus from Kigali to Kampala and a Volcano company bus heading to Kigali from Kampala.
Survivors and locals told Rise news in Uganda that the collision was at about 5:15am.
Police had not yet established the exact number of victims as they reached the accident scene but eyewitnesses anticipated the injured at 23.
The badly injured are 12 and were rushed to Doctor’s Referral Hospital in Rubaare Town while others were taken to Itojo Hospital.
Eyewitness also attributed the accident to a misty road which potentially blurred both drivers.
