Messages of sympathy are pouring in for a Law Development Centre (LDC) bar course student, who died in an accident, 19 days after her graduation.
Caroline Aturinda died when a car she was travelling in was hit by a train at Nakawa on Sunday morning.
The police also named Norbert Tizikara, 32, an architect, in the same accident. Reports also named Ann Kabaaya as the third victim of the accident.
LDC tweeted: “It is on a sad note that we announce the death of Aturinda Caroline which occurred yesterday after a train crash in Nakawa Division. Caroline was an LDC student due to graduate on July 29. May the Lord comfort her family during this difficult moment. RIP Caroline.”
The one-year bar course is studied by lawyers in Uganda, who intend to become advocates.
Mr John Ssengendo, the Uganda Railways Corporation communications officer, said their locomotive was returning from Namanve after delivering goods.
“That according to the train driver, he hooted before reaching the level crossing as is always required of them. He said he had the headlamps flushing bright for any other motorist to see, but he suspects that the accident could have resulted from the carelessness of the car driver,” Mr Ssengendo said on Sunday.
However, many areas where the train crosses do not have level crossing guards and often the motorists are blocked by several features from seeing incoming locomotives.
