Update: 11:05AM THE driver of the truck, who allegedly caused a serious accident at Shalimar St in Samabula early this week, remains in police custody.

The driver was earlier charged with dangerous driving causing grievous bodily harm and warned for prosecution.

However, police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said he was brought in yesterday for questioning following the death of one of the passengers, involved in the same accident.

"The post mortem (examination) is currently being conducted, the results of which will determine whether charges if any, will be laid against the driver," Ms Naisoro said.
