Four family members die in traffic accident in Mbale-Tororo
Four family members have been killed after a Mitsubishi Fuso truck loaded with cement collided with another truck carrying marble stones on Mbale-Tororo road. The Toyota Fuso truck coming from Tororo to Mbale then rammed into nine family members walking home from a yard and four of them were killed on the spot. Two others were injured. The police seized the two trucks and arrested the driver of the Fuso truck. Elgon Police spokesman Rogers Taitika blamed the accident on excessive speed and reckless behavior by both drivers.
