George Muhindo the OC Station of Kamuganguzi Police Post in Kabale district is battling for his life at Kabale regional referral hospital where he was admitted after being involved in a deadly road accident.
Muhindo, who by last night was in intensive care, was nearly killed in the accident on Thursday morning, together with two others Lynette Gumoshabe, 18, and Jadeda Ndikubwaye a Rwandan national.
The accident happened at around 9:10am at the Rushoroza Cathedral road junction in Mwanjari ward in the Southern division of Kabale, on the Kabale-Katuna road.
Muhindo, who was riding his motorcycle registration number UP 673, heading to town, is said to have knocked Gumoshabe who was crossing the road.
An oncoming Toyota Ipsum registration number UAM 927L, in an attempt to dodge the two, knocked Ndikubwaye, a pedal cyclist.
Eyewitnesses attributed the accident to over speeding of the police officer.
Gumoshabe sustained a compound fracture and was in the surgical ward, while Ndikubwaye escaped with minor injuries and was quickly dismissed from hospital.
Elly Maate, the Kigezi Region Police Spokesperson blamed the accident on Gumashobe who tried to cross the road carelessly.
