A SEVEN-YEAR-OLD girl has become the country's latest road accident victim after she was allegedly struck by a speeding vehicle on the Valley Rd at Bilalevu, Sigatoka, on Friday afternoon.

Arisha Raj, a Year Two student of Loma Primary School, was taking a bottle of water to her father, Raj Deo, who was working on the family farm when the incident happened.

Mr Deo was too distraught to speak to The Fiji Times team that visited the family yesterday.

His brother, Bimal Deo, said the family could not understand how their only daughter had been taken from them.
