Passengers unhurt

PASSENGERS travelling in a bus to Nadi escaped injuries after an accident on Thursday afternoon, says police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro.

She said the incident occurred about 4.45pm on Denarau Island.

"This occurred when the driver of the 25-seater bus failed to negotiate the roundabout near the main gate and crashed into a flower bed before hitting a retaining wall," she said.

Twenty-two passengers and the driver escaped unhurt.

In a separate incident, a 48-year-old bus driver who was driving to the Nadi Bus Stand bumped a concrete post near the Nadi market after failing to negotiate a bend.

"No passengers were on board when the incident occurred at around 3.40pm.

"Both drivers have alleged that their brakes and steering had failed resulting in the two accidents.

"However, an inspection will be carried out by a Land Transport Authority examiner to determine the cause of the accidents."

Ms Naisoro said bus operators and drivers were being urged to conduct constant checks on their buses to avoid accidents.
