At least eight people have been confirmed dead and several injured after a Modern Coast Bus was involved in a grisly accident along the Iganga-Bugiri highway in Uganda on Sunday morning.

Uganda’s Daily Monitor reports indicate that the 5.30 am accident occurred after a trailer collided with the bus that was travelling from Kenya.

The driver of the trailer is said to have lost control and veered to the right-hand side of the road where he collided with the bus.

The Kenyan bus had 40 passengers at the time of the accident.

The survivors were taken to different hospitals including Bugiri, Iganga and Fast Line Medical Centre in Bugiri.

“We are yet to identify the exact cause of the accident because we picked some bottles of waragi in the trailer and suspect that the driver was drunk,” Mr Twesiga said.
