This is not the first time Mr Kabaziguruka is involved in a car accident.
In July the Opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) law maker sustained a double fracture on one of his legs when the ambulance van he was driving collided with another truck near the Uganda Manufacturers Association Showground in Lugogo, Kampala.
He was confined to a wheelchair for several months.
