A44-year-old woman was killed af­ter a car she was in col­lided with an­other ve­hi­cle at Tuvu, be­tween Lautoka and Ba, on Satur­day af­ter­noon.

Four other pas­sen­gers, in­clud­ing a six-year-old, were taken to Lautoka Hospi­tal for in­juries they sus­tained. The accident hap­pened at around 3.55pm. The woman, Par­wati Narayan, died be­fore she reached the hospi­tal.

It is be­lieved the driver of the car picked Mrs Narayan up while on his way to Lautoka from the road side near her home in Tava­rau, which was not far from the scene of the accident. Ac­cord­ing to a wit­ness, the ve­hi­cle col­lided with an­other car which was head­ing to Ba.

Po­lice said the ve­hi­cles hit each other on the side, with one land­ing in the ditch. Pas­sen­gers from the other ve­hi­cle sus­tained mi­nor in­juries, were treated and sent home.

Po­lice con­tinue in­ves­ti­ga­tions.
