A 45 year old man became a victim of a road accident last night in the Western Division.
The deceased while trying to cross the road at the Buabua junction in Lautoka at around 11.30pm was allegedly bumped by a vehicle driven by a 47 year old man from Waiyavi.
The alleged impact of the accident resulted in the deceased being thrown on to the tarseal road resulting in his death.
The vehicle the suspect was driving ended up in the drain as he was trying to avoid the incident.
This is the second fatal accident within a 24 hour period and we are once again pleading with both drivers and pedestrians to take all the necessary precautions when travelling on our roads.
The festive season is upon us which means a lot of traffic activity. While traffic officers will be out to monitor movement, the onus is on every individual to take ownership of their safety and be considerate of other road users.
