A freak accident at Vaivai Road, Lautoka, yesterday resulted in 30 people being rushed to the Lautoka Hospital.

A bus hit three other oncoming vehicles while it was travelling downhill.

The bus driver is believed to have lost control.

Ms Naisoro also confirmed that 30 people had been rushed to the Lautoka Hospital and the severity of the damage to the four vehicles was being assessed.
