Yumbe Woman Member of Parliament Huda Oleru has survived a nasty accident at Bamusuuta in Nakasongola along Kampala-Gulu highway. Her vehicle registration number UAU 550M Toyota Noah lost control and crashed into a trench.
The legislator has been rushed to Nakasero hospital along with two other occupants including Richard Absom, the driver and another unidentified woman. They all sustained injuries.
The driver, who managed to speak albeit with difficulty, said the group was travelling from Yumbe to Kampala when the brakes developed a mechanical problem.
As a result, he struggled to swerve off the road to avoid a collision with an oncoming truck.
The wreckage of the vehicle has been towed to Kakooge Police Station.
Savannah region police publicist Lameck Kigozi tells URN that the situation has been handled as investigations continue.
