Tuesday, March 11, 2014

FIVE people were rushed to Labasa Hospital yesterday after the truck they were travelling in veered off the road at Valelawa in Macuata.

North police commander SSP Naulumatua Lutunacaucau said the victims were badly injured.

"The truck is believed to have gone down a cliff after it veered off the road," he said.

"The passengers including the driver sustained injuries and were rushed to hospital. No one has been charged or taken into custody yet as the victims are still in the hospital. I have been briefed on this information so far and I will expect to get a full report in the afternoon (yesterday)."

The accident prompted police to issue a fresh warning for motorists to be extra careful when driving during this rainy weather.

"Be alert and take extreme caution when driving," SSP Lutunacaucau said.
