POLICE will wait for the LTA vehicle examiner's report before proceeding with their investigation on the bus that veered off the Wairiki Hill in Bua over the weekend.

Divisional police commander northern SSP Naulumatua Lutunacaucau yesterday said the inspection of the bus was scheduled to take place today .

"The bus is at the station and we will have to wait until tomorrow for the examiner to carry out his inspection as the LTA office is closed today (Sunday)," he said.

"The driver was interviewed and released as further investigations continue."

SSP Lutunacaucau also clarified the bus was carrying 25 passengers.

"Out of the 25, 13 were medically-examined and sent home. The rest continued their journey to Labasa in another bus."
