POLICE have established a lead that will hopefully help them arrest the driver of a vehicle that was involved in a hit-and-run accident in Labasa over the weekend.

Northern police head SSP Naulumatua Lutunacaucau said they had been assisted with information from members of the public.

Following the hit-and-run incident, he advised that people wear attractive coloured clothing when using the road at night.

"We are also asking motorists to please drive safely and carefully on the roads," he said.

"We have just started the new year and we would like to save lives on our roads."

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the accident happened on Saturday night.

"The incident occurred around 10.30pm along the FSC road in Labasa whereby an unknown iTaukei man was hit by an unknown vehicle while on his way to Bulileka.

"The victim is admitted at the Labasa Hospital and as a result of injuries sustained we are yet to identify who he is as he is still unconscious."
