A MOTHER and her two children escaped injury when the vehicle they were in was hit by a carrier.

Police have given a traffic infringement notice to the driver of the carrier that caused the accident at Nabua in Suva.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said careless driving was the cause of the accident at the junction of Lady Maraia Drive and Sukanaivalu Rd in Nabua.

Ms Naisoro said the private vehicle in which the children were had stopped at the traffic lights when the carrier bumped it from behind.

The accident caused a traffic jam on the busy stretch of road between Suva and Nausori. Police have urged drivers to be more careful when travelling on the country's roads and to be mindful of other road users.
