POLICE have questioned the driver of a vehicle that was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run accident in Labasa over the weekend.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the driver was arrested by police on Sunday.

After officers questioned the suspect, he was released because police needed to wait for the victim to be discharged from hospital.

Ms Naisoro said once they questioned the victim, charges could be made against the driver.

The suspect is a 22-year-old who lives in Nakama, Savusavu.

The victim, police reports confirmed, is a 42-year-old farmer from Vunivau in Labasa.

The victim was hit by the vehicle on Saturday night while he was walking on the road near the FSC mill.
