A 24-year-old, who is alleged to be under the influence of alcohol while driving, had to spend his Christmas weekend at Labasa Police Station after being involved in an ac­cident.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said on Christmas eve the suspect was head­ing towards Vunimoli when he allegedly drove his vehicle onto the opposite land and collided with another vehicle.

“The other driver, a 51-year-old farmer of Vunimoli, Labasa was with five pas­sengers heading towards Labasa Hospi­tal,” Ms Naisoro said.

“Four passengers, who received minor injuries were treated and sent home. A 24-year-old woman who is admitted at Labasa Hospital is in a stable condition.

The suspect was drunk at the time of the incident.”

A Labasa Policeman, on his beat patrol, was assaulted by a 27-year-old farmer of Nubu Village in the province of Macu­ata at the weekend.

“The officer tried to stop a fight infront of Fusion Niteclub in the main street of Labasa Town,” Ms Naisoro said.
