Four teenagers were killed in a road accident in Uganda on Friday, last week, just moments after filming themselves and uploading the video on social media.

Confirming the incident, Ugandan police identified the teens as students at Ndejje Senior Secondary School. The accident occurred at Bajjo village, along the Kampala-Gulu highway, after their vehicle with registration number UAR 860W, ran into a stationery truck.

It was gathered that the deceased, who sat their national exams last November, were on their way to school to collect their results which were released by UNEB on February 7, 2018.

“We received the sad news with shock. We are trying to get in touch with the relatives and the police on what happened”, Dr Charles Kahigiriza, the school head teacher
told the local media.

Charles Ssebambulidde, the Public Relations Officer at the Traffic Directorate in Kampala, identified the deceased as
Vincent Male, Mark Ndugga and Isaac Sserwanja.

“Three students died on the spot while their colleagues identified as Timothy Nyogera was taken to Bombo military Hospital in critical condition. The preliminary investigation report points to speeding” Ssebambulidde said.
