A 45-year-old driver is the lat­est vic­tim on our roads fol­low­ing a mo­tor ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dent in Namosi on Mon­day morn­ing.

Subash Goundar of Cun­ning­ham was head­ing to­wards Wainiyavu Vil­lage when he al­legedly lost con­trol of the truck along Nakavika caus­ing it to veer off the road and roll down a nearby slope.

The fa­ther of two was em­ployed at Korean Auto Traders, Suva. Work­mates de­scribed the late Mr Goundar as an hon­est and hard­work­ing man who had been an asset to the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

His neigh­bour Nir­mam Ku­mar also shared sim­i­lar sen­ti­ments adding that Mr Goundar had be­come a close friend in the seven years that he had known him.

“If he walks past my house in the week­ends, he will def­i­nitely come in for a bowl of grog, that was the kind of friend­ship we had,” Mr Ku­mar said.

“He was a fam­ily man, good-hearted and cheer­ful. He got along with ev­ery­one.”

The fam­ily is cur­rently wait­ing for the post-mortem to be con­ducted. The road death toll cur­rently stands at 30 com­pared to 46 for the same pe­riod last year.
