The accident happened on Friday morning at Kumi- Apata near Kumi Municipality. It involved a Fuso Lorry registration number UBE 489W, Mitsubishi white in colour which was carrying livestock, rammed into a stationary trailer, UAQ 925N/UAL 834X.
The deceased’s family was stranded at Gulu Main Hospital Mortuary on Tuesday afternoon when their pleas to the Deputy Chief Justice through his driver to cover the burial expenses failed to yield results.
The accident claimed 22 lives and left scores of others nursing injuries. The 22 were killed when a Kampala bound bus registration number UAK 562-L hit the rear of a tractor before colliding with an oncoming truck in Nanda village, some 12 kilometres from Karuma Township in Mutunda Sub County.
