TWO men were rushed to the Sigatoka Sub-divisional Hospital early yesterday after the vehicle they were travelling in flipped over on the Queens Rd.

Police west spokeswoman Naina Ragigia confirmed the men, the driver and a passenger, were part of a funeral procession on its way to Vuda, outside Lautoka.

"We can confirm that two people were taken to Sigatoka Hospital around 7am after they were involved in a car accident," said Mrs Ragigia.

"They had left Suva at 4am and were heading to Lautoka for a funeral."

She said the two men suffered serious injuries.

Ms Ragigia added that the cause of the accident remained undetermined.

"At this point in time, we are still trying to ascertain the cause of the accident."

According to witnesses, the accident held up traffic.

Those at the scene reportedly rushed to the overturned vehicle to get the injured men out.
