Six-year-old boy dies in an accident

December 21, 2016 9:57 pm

A six-year-old boy died in a road accident along Vuci Road, Nausori yesterday.

It is alleged the boy suddenly crossed the road and was hit by a vehicle driven by a 57-year-old man.

Police Spokesperson, Ana Naisoro, says the victim was taken to the Nausori hospital where he was pronounced dead.

In another accident, a post mortem will be conducted to confirm the cause of death of a 52-year-old man of Vuci Road who was a passenger in a vehicle driven by a 40-year-old earlier this month.

It is alleged the suspect had lost control of his vehicle resulting in a collision with another vehicle.

The road death toll currently stands at 52 compared to 61 for the same period last year.
