Four people have survived by the whisker after a vehicle in which they were travelling swerved off the road and ran over a fence in Kampala.
The accident which occurred at around 1pm Thursday afternoon along Kira Road in Kamwokya involved a grey Mazda Registration Number UAV 804F.
Witnesses say the vehicle was driving at a terrible speed from Kamwokya towards Kira Police Station.
It knocked on another car and swerved off the road crashing into neighboring apartments opposite Yuan Yuan Furniture.
The vehicle rammed into the compound of the apartments landing on its left side facing the road.
Its windscreen remained intact though the rear and window glasses got smashed while the front and side parts of the chasis curved in.
Part of the brick-made fence was destroyed.
“I had walked past only to hear a loud bang and people rushing. The car was driving on a terrible speed so I suspect the driver failed to control it given that there’s a bit of a corner,” a witness named Anet Kibone told ChimpReports.
Another witnessed identified as Scovia Kobusingye who too was walking towards the spot when the accident occurred told ChimpReports that the four survivors included two males and two females.
She said the four have been rushed to Mulago hospital.
“The car was speeding. The driver slightly knocked on another vehicle and got off the road,” Kobusingye said.
By press time, the Mazda was being towed away to Kira Road police station.
