A shocking video capturing a car flying through the air has been circulating on social media platforms. The incident occurred last night at Kayunga Road Junction along Acacia Avenue.
According to reports, the fatal accident took place around 1:26 a.m. when a black Mercedes-Benz with the registration number UBL 189R lost control upon reaching the Kayunga junction.
The driver, identified as Kimera Faziru from Buwate, was reportedly driving at a high speed from the Acacia side when the car struck three street children before colliding with the road barriers.
