Tibihika was at the time of the accident driving alone in the car, according to the North Kyoga Regional Police spokesperson, SP Patrick Jimmy Okema.

Okema said crime scene officers documented the accident scene, and the body of the deceased was removed and taken to Lira Regional Referral Hospital’s mortuary pending post-mortem examinations.
