A 25-YEAR-OLD Labasa labourer was paralysed after falling from a moving vehicle at Vuniqari in Tabia, Macuata.

Confirming this, police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri yesterday said the incident happened last week.

"The victim was travelling with the driver and were making their way back to Labasa from Nabouwalu," he said.

"They stopped at Tabia and while the victim was still trying to get off the vehicle, the driver suddenly drove off.

"The victim fell and sustained injuries.

"The victim is admitted at the men's surgical ward at the Labasa Hospital after suffering spinal injuries.

"The driver is yet to be located."

The situation prompted police to issue a fresh warning for people to take safety measures while travelling.
