My cousin picked me from Makerere University. It was a weekend and we were going to Bushenyi. We got stuck in traffic around Nateete for about an hour. The traffic jam made this driver crazy and he started overtaking other cars at a high speed. I do not remember what exactly happened but in the blink of an eye, I was in a hospital in Nkozi.
