BUSIIKA- In what appears to be a case of misjudgment, a rally driver in Busika, off Gayaza Road, on Sunday drove into a crowd, killing one person and injuring nine others.

A police statement indicates that the rally driver was trying to save the life of mobile phone thief who was being chased, suddenly crossed the road forcing the driver to brake suddenly but because he was at high speed, the car rammed into fans.

The police statement says the injured were rushed to Mulago and Nsambya hospitals as well as Kasana Luwero Health Centre.
