The Crash happened in Lutunku village in Kawanda sub county, Sembabule district after the truck driver lost control.
The fuso truck, Reg No UBD 052D swerved off the road and rolled several times after its tires burst killing 20 animals including goats and cows.
According to the Sembabule District Police Commander Rogers Kapere, they also blame the crash on over-speeding by the truck driver. Apparently, the truck driver is also one of the people who sustained injuries in the accident.
“Police have always warned cattle traders against sitting on the trucks that carry livestock since they are always speeding which risks their lives,” he noted.
Apparently, about 15 people are hospitalized after sustaining serious injuries according to eyewitnesses in the area. Leonard Ssemakula, one of the survivors said they were heading to Kampala and were coming from Lwemiyaga.
“We managed to save some animals with broken limbs but unfortunately some had already died since they were congested in the truck,” he added.
