FOUR passengers and the driver of the minibus involved in a fatal road accident in Lomawai, Sigatoka, on Wednesday remain hospitalised.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the driver was yet to be questioned.

A 27-year-old teacher, who was a passenger in the van, died while being evacuated to the Sigatoka Hospital while the 44-year-old minibus driver is under police watch at the hospital, she said.

"Other passengers of the minibus — a 23-year-old teacher, a 43-year-old male, 50-year-old man and another 40-year-old teacher — all sustained minor injuries and are all admitted in a stable condition at the Sigatoka Hospital," Ms Naisoro said.
