At least 16 people died and 21 others were injured after a Gulu-bound bus smashed into a stationary trailer at the Adobe trading center in Kamini along the Kampala-Gulu highway in northern Uganda on Friday.
The cause of the accident is yet to be established, but preliminary findings indicate wrong parking by the trailer driver with no warning signs. It’s a very unfortunate incident.
