WASAVULU villagers in Labasa are counting their children lucky after they escaped injury from a hurtling car that lost control during rush hour in front of the village stretch yesterday morning.
Wasavulu villager Melaia Drauna said the driveway on which the car landed was the same spot the children stood a minute before they crossed the road to board their bus.
Meanwhile police are expected to lay charges against the driver after completing investigations.
Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said the driver was with his wife in the car and was rushing to work yesterday morning when the incident occurred.
He confirmed that the couple were treated and sent home after receiving minor injuries.
