A SIX-year-old boy is admitted at the Labasa Hospital after he was allegedly hit by a vehicle at Soasoa over the weekend.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the incident happened on Saturday afternoon.

"The 42-year-old driver was interviewed under caution and released," she said.

Ms Naisoro said the driver was trying to overtake another vehicle when he hit the victim.

She said the victim was recovering at the hospital.

"Our officers in Labasa will soon inspect the driver's vehicle."
