According to the driver of the train that killed the couple, he did what was required of him but the motorist did not stop.

The video sparked reactions from netizens as seen below.
Glosh Glosh: Let us not judge and death is death on top of that it’s our way, rest in internal peace.
Golda Namara: A train crossing is supposed to have barriers. I think Ugandan drivers should be advocating for better safety features at these crossings instead of witch hunting the deceased couple.
Kakaire Ashley: That place, moreover at times trailers are parked nearby you can’t view clearly the oncoming train from afar, RIP.
Joan Reena: RIP. I keep looking at their pictures over and over again. May they Rest In Peace.
