Another life has been lost on our roads following a fatal accident in the Western Division taking the road death toll to 45.
Assistant Commissioner of Police and Chief Operations Officer Rusiate Tudravu has expressed his disappointment that despite numerous pleas for the need to be safe on our roads, some drivers continue to do as they please and unfortunately another life has been lost.
His comments follow another tragic incident where a woman died following a motor vehicle accident that occurred at Veiseisei Road in Lautoka yesterday.
The minivan whilst heading to Lautoka overturned three times and came to a stop after hitting the railing of a bridge.
The victim was rushed to the Lautoka Hospital but unfortunately died in the afternoon. Three other passengers were treated for injuries and later sent home. The driver is yet to be questioned.
ACP Tudravu is also appealing for information that could help identify the victim who is an i-taukei woman believed to be aged between 30-40 years and had boarded the minivan from Namaka.
Anyone with information is requested to call the Divisional Traffic Officer West on 9905 633.
