Baulevu Accident, decision to continue search today
April 27, 2019 7:47 am
The Police Force will make a decision this morning on whether to continue with the search for the missing vehicle in the Rewa River.
Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro says a combined team of divers attempted to dive in search for the missing vehicle yesterday following a discussion between the Commissioner of Police and the Commander Fiji Navy.
Naisoro says the Navy divers were brought in to reinforce the PSRU divers and the joint team made one attempt yesterday but had to call off the search efforts due to the unfavorable and dangerous conditions.
The current was still too strong and visibility poor to safely conduct any further search efforts.
The car, it’s driver and an unconfirmed number of passengers plummeted into the Rewa River on Wednesday morning after it veered off the road in Naduruloulou, in Kasavu, Nausori.
Police continue to ascertain the identities of the driver and the other suspected passengers.
