Girl, 9, dies in mishap

Maciu Malo
Monday, January 21, 2013

POLICE have called on people in the Western Division to be vigilant while on the road after a nine-year-old girl became the latest road fatality.

The death of the young girl at Malake landing junction in Ra yesterday has increased the road death toll to four compared to nil for the same period last year.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said all road fatalities this year happened in the west.

"The Western Division is always a problem area with many road accidents occurring there and so far all the road deaths for this year are in the west," she said.

"It is sad to see innocent people die on the road despite the many warnings and road safety awareness. Police can't be everywhere to monitor our roads and therefore motorists have to take extra care.

"We're reiterating our calls to all drivers and pedestrians — especially in the west — to take precautionary measures while on the road. "Students and parents will be busy preparing for another school year and we urge everyone to be extra careful," she added.
