A member of parliament is battling for his life after getting involved in a nasty car accident in Kiryandogo this morning.
Charles Angiro Gutmoi, who is the Erute North MP in Lira district, got involved in a head on smash while driving a Noah registration number UAV 089G, which collided head-on with a Fuso truck number UAJ 730U.
The incident occurred at about 3:00AM at Karuma Bridge. According to eyewitnesses, MP Gutmoi sustained a fractured right leg and is currently undergoing medical attention at Kiryandongo, as he awaits being evacuated to Kampala for specialized treatment.
This however comes just a few days after over 23 people perished in a nasty accident that occurred in Kiryandongo when a Gaaga bus collided with a tractor before ramming into trailer truck that was parked along the roadside.
The accident comes barely a month after another MP for Buyaga East Eric Musana was involved in a nasty accident at Busimbi town in Mityana district.
