A MAN escaped unhurt when his vehicle plunged into the railings of the Labasa Hospital's new wing yesterday.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the vehicle went out of control when the driver accidentally stepped on the accelerator instead of applying the brakes.

"The incident happened in the morning and fortunately the victim was saved as he did not sustain any injuries," she said. At the same time, Ms Naisoro also confirmed that they were still waiting for the post-mortem examination results of the iTaukei man whose body was found floating near the Savusavu Wharf on Thursday.

"The body of the deceased who is originally from Viti Levu and was in Savusavu carrying out road upgrade works for his company has been viewed by police in Savusavu with nil signs of injuries," said Ms Naisoro.
