A five-year-old boy is dead after a hit and run case in Labasa yesterday.
It’s alleged the child, Inia Masiavani, was trying to cross the road when he was hit by an unknown vehicle.
He was rushed to the hospital where he was admitted but died later this morning.
Police have confirmed that they have found the driver of the vehicle and he is currently in custody.
Meanwhile police will question the driver of a bus involved in an accident in Navua that claimed the life of a 64-year old woman once he recovers from his injuries.
Director of Traffic SSP Mahesh Mishra says the driver is admitted at Colonial War Memorial Hospital.
Three passengers including two students are also admitted in hospital.
The bus that was carrying students and parents veered off the road, hit a power pole and landed in a drain at Waidradra, Navua yesterday.
The passengers were returning home from the Rewa Galaxy Kaji rugby tournament that was held in Suva.
