Awoman in her 20s is ex­pected to un­dergo a spine operation this week af­ter she sus­tained a se­ri­ous in­jury in a car accident in Olosara, Si­ga­toka yes­ter­day morn­ing. The vic­tim is ad­mit­ted at Lautoka Hospi­tal af­ter be­ing trans­ferred from the Si­ga­toka Hospi­tal. The ve­hi­cle was trav­el­ling to­wards Suva when it veered off the road and plunged into the bush. Po­lice in­spec­tor Jo­saia We­icavu said the state­ment given to them by the vic­tims was that the car tried to dodge a horse which came in the mid­dle of the road. “An accident hap­pened where 21 year old driver lost con­trol of the ve­hi­cle and veered of the road,” he said. The driver and two other pas­sen­gers were treated and sent home from Si­ga­toka Hospi­tal. In­spec­tor We­icavu said: “We again would like to ad­vise driv­ers to drive slowly and just avoid over speed­ing. “Over speed­ing will take you and your pas­sen­gers to the hospi­tal and might end up in the mor­tu­ary if you are not lucky enough to sur­vive af­ter the accident.

“It is bet­ter to ar­rive late but safely to your next des­ti­na­tion.”
