Car hits 6-year-old girl; critical in hospital

A six-year-old girl of Tavua Primary School is admitted in a critical condition at the Lautoka Hospital Intensive Care Unit after she was hit by a private car driven by a 21-year-old businessman at Yasiyasi, Tavua along the Kings Road on Tuesday afternoon.

Police spokesperson Inspector Josaia Weicavu said the girl was crossing the road after getting off from the bus when she was hit.

Police are requesting motorists to slow down and be alert when approaching a bus discharging passengers, especially students after school hours in the afternoon.
