The accident occurred at Kicumbi, in Kamuganguzi sub county when a Kigali Bound Baby Coach registration number UAS 307M had a head on collision with a Fuso Lorry registration number UAQ 640Q that was travelling from Katuna to Kabale town at 4:00am in the morning.
Ely Maate, the Kigezi regional Police spokesperson says the Baby Coach bus registration number UAS 307M and Fuso Lorry registration number UAQ 640Q were racing at terrific speed when they collided.
He says the situation was aggravated by the morning mist, which made it difficult for the bus driver to dodge to Fuso truck at a sharp bend.

The injured accident victims are receiving treatment at Kabale regional referral hospital. The wreckage of the bus has been towed to Kabale Central Police station.
Justine Munezero, one of the travelers on the ill fated bus says they pleaded with the driver several times to slow down but he was adamant. He says the situation worsened when they approached the Kabale- Katuna road, which is found in a flat area.
