Fijis road death toll has hit 49, compared to 37 for the same time last year after two deaths on our roads in the space of a few hours in separate accidents.
In the first accident yesterday, decease an Australian national aged 52 years lost his life along Olosara in Sigatoka. It is believed he lost control of the rental car he was driving and collided head on with a truck in the opposite lane.
He was rushed to the Sigatoka Hospital, but was pronounced dead because of the multiple injuries sustained in the accident.
In the second incident this morning, a 24-year-old woman died after the company vehicle she was travelling hit a FEA Post in front of Carpenters Motors, Walu Bay.
The van was driven by a 26-year-old man and was conveying six passengers who were to be dropped off at work this morning. The rest of the passengers and driver were rushed to CWM Hospital for treatment.
Police said that as investigations continue, it is becoming evident that accidents on our roads are occurring every second day which has become a major concern for the Fiji Police Force.
The Police Force has requested the general public to be safe at all times, and be mindful of other road users.
