Kampala — Murdal Acharya, 22 and Vimles Bharsal, 29, did not see the day-break yesterday. They died instantly in an accident on Acacia Avenue in Kololo at 3:15am.
Kampala Extra deputy regional Traffic officer Sarah Kibwika said the two Indians died when their vehicle collided with a blue Toyota Corolla UAE 099R at the Windsor Crescent and Acacia Road junction.
"They were passengers in a white Subaru Imprezza. They died on the spot," Kibwika said.
Their driver, Baldip Singh, 20, was rushed to Bai International medical Centre at Old Kampala where he is in critical condition.
Also admitted at the hospital is Hiram Bhatt, 23, a passenger in the Toyota driven by Lodhia Jamnadas Vasa, 27.
Vasa was treated at the nearby Surgery Clinic and discharged hours after the accident.
Rajni Taylor of the Indian Association of Uganda said Acharya was an accountant with KPMG, while Bharsal, who was cremated yesterday at the Hindu crematorium, was an executive member of the Lohana Community in Kampala.
The two men's mangled vehicle was towed to the Police Inspectorate of Vehicles yard at Naguru, while the Toyota was towed to Jinja Road Police Station.
