Driver claims for $40K

A CARRIER driver from Savusavu is claiming $40,000 in damages against a rental car company and the driver.

Prema Nand gave evidence yesterday in the Suva Magistrates Court in a civil matter claiming damages against Jan Rentals and Roger Lutz.

In his evidence, Mr Nand said he had a rural service licence to service a route to and from Savusavu.

He told the court that last year, while on the route, he was hit by the rental car driven by the Mr Lutz about 90 kilometres from his home.

Lawyers for the two defendants — the rental company and Mr Lutz — told the court their issue was who would pay for the claims if damages were granted to Mr Nand.

Magistrate Chaitaniya Lakshman told the court that as far as Mr Nand was concerned, all he wanted was the money and it didn't matter who it came from.

Mr Lakshman said the defendants would have to thrash out this matter between themselves.

The court also heard the second defendant admitted guilt.

A decision on the case is yet to be made.
