A touching video has surfaced on social media showing the final moments of a Ugandan couple who died in a horrific accident.

A video shared on social media shows the two lovebirds dying together, having fun and hugging.

“Rest In Peace: Couple; Norbert Tezikara and Arusinda Caroline, victims of a level crossing accident, having fun before hitting the road," Nyamate, a ChimpsReports journalist, said on Twitter.


Unfortunately, after the party, the couple and another woman, identified as Ann, got into their vehicle to go home but couldn't make it.

"According to the driver, he screamed before reaching the intersection, as is always required. He said he turned on his headlights so other drivers could see him, but he suspects the accident may have been due to the negligence of the driver," Uganda Railways Corporation was quoted as saying by the Daily Monitor.


Video surveillance camera footage

News of the couple's deaths shocked netizens, especially after CCTV footage of the incident surfaced online.


In the clip, the train can be seen approaching in bright light just as the driver of the car tries to close the tracks.


In a terrifying moment, the train is seen smashing the car into pieces. The woman was reported dead at the scene and the man died moments later.
