Two people including an Assistant Inspector of Police on Sunday morning died in a road accident.
The accident happened at Kitembe trading centre along Ntungamo-Mirama highway.
SP Damian Katwesiime, the Ntungamo district police commander identified the deceased as AIP Robert Kamukama who was the OC CID at Railway Police Station in Kampala, and one Eng. Asiimwe Benard, a resident of Ruhaama trading centre in Ntungamo district.
The two were traveling in a Premio Number UAY 168F which reportedly slammed into the rear part of a Fuso truck number UAX 967W.
The duo died on spot while the three occupants of the Fuso did not sustain any injuries.
Katwesiime attributed the accident to over speeding by the driver of the premio.
