AN iTaukei man is dead after he was hit by two unidentified vehicles near Delainamasi Primary School early on Saturday morning.

This was confirmed by police yesterday.

"Near Delainamasi Primary School around 1.30 this morning, an unidentified iTaukei male was walking along Kings Rd towards Kinoya where he was bumped by two unidentified vehicles," a statement from the Fiji Police Force said.

According to the statement, a witness said that the vehicles fled the scene after hitting the man.

"Statement of a machine operator of Newtown settlement has been recorded, stating that the deceased was bumped by two unidentified vehicles," the statement said.

"The first car was a white taxi who, after bumping, dragged the deceased 26 metres from the point of impact and made a u-turn before heading back towards Nausori.
