Two people died on Saturday in a Mabira Forest road accident that involved four speeding vehicles and two boda boda motorcycles.
Scores of people who were injured, have been rushed to Kawolo Hospital in critical condition. Witnesses say, the two people who died on spot were boda boda riders who were riding with a group of about 50 boda boda cyclists to Iganga District, to attend a burial ceremony.
The boda boda riders, according to witnesses, were riding ahead of a heavy truck on the notorious Mabira Forest section, where most motorists are fond of driving at breath-taking speed.
As they raced, the truck crushed the two boda boda riders beyond recognition, before it crashed in a ditch some 50 metres away.
