Luisa Mary Wil­son, 61, was shocked yes­ter­day by the sad news of her brother’s death when she vis­ited him in his home in Wailekutu. Her Brother, Ti­moci Naibiriki Wil­son, 51, died in an ac­ci­dent when his ve­hi­cle col­lided with an am­bu­lance near Veis­ari. Po­lice spokesper­son Ana Naisoro said the am­bu­lance was trav­el­ling to­wards Nabukavesi to at­tend to an ac­ci­dent case. But it is also un­der­stood the am­bu­lance was on its way to the Fiji Car Club drag race at Nanuku Aero­drome in Deuba.

The col­li­sion forced both ve­hi­cles into a three me­tre deep drain. Po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tions are con­tin­u­ing. Ms Wil­son said she was hop­ing to sur­prise his brother af­ter hav­ing last seen him on July 27 when she was ad­mit­ted at the Colo­nial War Memo­rial Hospi­tal.

“I wait­ing for him to­day (yes­ter­day) hop­ing he would turn up. Lit­tle did I know he was rushed to the hospi­tal,” she said. “We learnt of the news when a rel­a­tive came home and told us he saw the ve­hi­cle at the scene of the ac­ci­dent and heard his name on the ra­dio. “I’m a sin­gle woman and my brother has al­ways sup­ported me. I will greatly miss him. “My brother and I were very close. When I was in the hospi­tal for three weeks, he came ev­ery time to visit me. “When I was re­cov­er­ing, I heard from my sis­ter in Aus­tralia that he suf­fered from a stroke. I was shocked as he was very healthy.” Ms Wil­son who is from Wai­somo in Ka­davu, de­scribes her brother as a lov­ing fa­ther and a good per­son who had a big heart and cared for his fam­ily. The late Mr Wil­son had been serv­ing in the Re­pub­lic of Mil­i­tary Forces for the past 30 years. He is sur­vived by his wife, Vara­mua Wil­son and daughter Maria Wil­son. The fam­ily did not wish to re­lease any photos of him for pub­li­ca­tion. Edited by Jonathan Bryce
