TWO men narrowly escaped the possibility of a fatal accident after dodging a cane truck that had veered onto their lane this afternoon at Soasoa, just minutes outside Labasa.

Car driver Ravin Raj said he was heading towards Vunika with his friend when the cane truck, heading towards town, went onto his lane forcing him to drive down the nearby slope.

“The truck took the whole space on the road and to save our lives, I had to drive off road and ended up down the slope,” Mr Raj said.

“We are blessed that no one got hurt or died as a result.”

Police have asked cane truck drivers to be considerate while transporting their crop to the mill.
