WHEN Mohammed Hakeem spoke to his son on Saturday night, he didn't know it would be the last time they would be speaking.

Yesterday, 24-year-old Mosheem Hakeem became the latest road fatality after an early morning accident near Korovuto, Nadi.

"He had gone to a friend's wedding at Lomawai, that's what he told me before he left," the 49-year-old said. Mr Hakeem said his son's death had taken the family by shock and they remembered him as someone who was very hardworking and helpful.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said the victim was driving towards Nadi and was accompanied by two other men when the incident occurred about 3am.

"He allegedly lost control of the vehicle near Korovuto, causing it to veer off the road and crash into a Water Authority chamber," she said.

"The two passengers, who are in their 20s, are currently admitted at the Nadi Hospital in stable condition."

Ms Naisoro said investigations into the accident are continuing and a post-mortem examination will be conducted.
