A MAN is in a coma following a road accident in Sigatoka last Saturday, a day after the horrific accident that occurred a few kilometres away.

According to police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri, the accident happened near Tagaqe Primary School at 2.30pm.

Insp Sokomuri said a minivan and a private vehicle collided when the private vehicle came on to the opposite lane.

He said police found the driver of the vehicle was intoxicated with alcohol.

Insp Sokomuri said while the people travelling in the mini-van were treated and sent home, the driver of the private vehicle was in a coma

He said this was a tragic example why people should not drink alcohol and drive motor vehicles or operate machinery.

Meanwhile, a similar incident at the Nakorovou junction claimed the life of a 29-year-old man in the early hours of Friday last week.
