Update: 5:51PM A TEN-wheeler driver and his fellow colleague escaped injuries at the Lomaloma S-bend along the Labasa-Savusavu highway after the truck veered off the road this morning.
Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said a tyre burst caused the truck to swerve off the road.
"The truck was loaded with sugar and when it reached the S-bend, it experienced such problems. The two jumped out of the truck and luckily they didn't get hurt," he said.
He said the bags of sugar were transferred to another truck.
