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.
