POLICE in Labasa are still to lay charges on the driver of a car that was involved in a hit-and-run incident in Labasa Town on Saturday last week.

It is alleged the victim was drunk while returning from a popular nightspot in Labasa when the incident happened.

Divisional Police Commander north acting Senior Superintendent of Police Fulori Rainibogi said the victim who was admitted at the Labasa Hospital after sustaining injuries, had been discharged and was now in a stable condition.

"We were able to locate the suspect after initial investigations," said acting SSP Rainibogi.

"The sad thing here is that the driver never bothered to check on the victim after she was hit and fled the scene.

"This is a bad sign of people taking no care of others lives," she said.

"We continue to advise motorists in the north to exercise more caution and to be responsible when driving."
