One person was injured and admitted in critical condition in Kabale after a truck loaded with cement skidded off the road and overturned.
The accident according to the Kigezi regional police spokesman Elly Maate happened last evening at Bubare along the Kabale Kisoro Road.
The truck number UBC 560D, Maate says was transporting Simba Cement from Tororo to Bunagana in Kisoro district.
The truck driver, Hussein Turyamuhweba who was admitted at Rugarama Hospital, is said to have failed to negotiate a sharp bend.
“He ended up landing in a roadside stream where much of the cement was damaged,” Maate said.
He adds that police managed to save on 105 bags of cement whereas the rest was soaked in the stream where the trailer poured them.
“Police visited the scene and the vehicle was retrieved from the stream. Investigations are underway,” Matte said.
