A driver has survived an accident after his truck loaded with sugar cane tipped over to its side yesterday while heading to the Fiji Sugar Corporation Labasa Mill.

The driver has been questioned by Police.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said that the driver made an attempt to drive pass other cane trucks that were waiting in a queue.

“The driver was unaware that his load of cane was not balanced and while he was trying to drive past other cane trucks waiting in line, it tipped over to its side,” Ms Naisoro said.

Police and the National Fire Authority were at the scene to assess the damage.
