Tizikara, the owner of Redion Designs, died later, according to our reporter.

The couple was driving a Mercedes Benz with the license plate UBJ 053N. However, the train driver reportedly hooted and flashed lights in vain in an attempt to warn the Mercedes Benz driver.

Road accidents at Kampala’s railway crossings have increased in recent years.

The Ministry of Works has been pressed to take action to address the situation, but all efforts have been futile.

Though, crossing lights have been shown to reduce nighttime vehicle-train collisions.

The couple was said to be retiring after a night out at a city nightclub. According to Uganda Railways Corporation, the incident occurred at 3:33 a.m.

Today at 0330hrs, an accident involving our train locomotive and a saloon car occurred at Nakawa. Investigations into the incident are underway by @PoliceUg and our utmost cooperation is guaranteed.

We extend our deepest sympathies to the families of the victims of this unfortunate incident. We are also committed to ensuring safety of all road users who interface with our trains.
