Ilaitia Damu and Milika Ledua are still in shock after their second eldest son died in a car accident at Navakaka Village in Cakaudrove on Sunday.

“The last time we saw Romanu he told us that he was going out for a road run. He recently graduated from the military early this year,” Mr Damu said.

“Romanu trained everyday so he could prepare himself when called in for duty. As he trained on Saturday afternoon one of his cousins, who was travelling towards Savusavu Town, picked him up and took him to Nabaci Village in Savusavu.”

Mr Damu said their son was returning on Sunday morning, when the accident occurred at Navakaka Village.

Navakaka villager Maria Frances said a loud bang from the road woke her up.

She said two of the nine passengers in the van sustained injuries as Romanu lay unconscious.

Meanwhile, Police spokesperson Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said investigations were currently underway.
