The driver of a ve­hi­cle in an ac­ci­dent which ended a man’s life last Satur­day, will face in­ter­ro­ga­tion from Po­lice once he is re­leased from hos­pi­tal.

This fol­lows Po­lice in­for­ma­tion that the 48-year-old driver and his pas­sen­gers were al­legedly un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol when the ac­ci­dent hap­pened at Nayawa in Nadroga. Po­lice spokesper­son, In­spec­tor Jokatama Qio said the driver was cur­rently ad­mit­ted at the Lau­toka Hos­pi­tal.

“Po­lice can­not do any­thing un­til he is re­leased from the hos­pi­tal. “We will have to wait for his re­lease be­fore any ques­tion­ing is done,” In­spec­tor Qio said.

The driver al­legedly lost con­trol of the ve­hi­cle which re­sulted in the ve­hi­cle veer­ing off the road and hit­ting a tree. The driver and the pas­sen­gers were rushed to the Si­ga­toka Hos­pi­tal where one of the pas­sen­gers died while the other pas­sen­ger was ad­mit­ted.
