One person died on the spot while four others sustained serious injuries after a fatal road accident in Kasama district, over the weekend.
The accident took place along the Golf Course Road on Sunday night when the vehicle failed to negotiate a curve and ended up hitting a rock.

They said the driver of the Toyota Collora registration number ALR 9024 was allegedly over-speeding at the time of the accident.
The deceased has been identified as Kasongo Chanda, 20, a second year student at Kasama College of Education.

He said the four include three girls and a man who is nursing serious inquires in Kasama General Hospital.
The body of the deceased is lying in Kasama General Hospital Mortuary awaiting postmortem.
And efforts to get a comment from Northern Province Police Commissioner Charity Katanga failed by press time.
Kasama town has in the recent past recorded a spate of accidents following the refurbishing of township roads to bituminous standard.
