Police spokesperson Inspector Jokatama Qio has urged parents to be mindful of their children’s safety and whereabouts.

His advice came in light of two separate road accidents involving children over the weekend.

Another involved a 46-year-old man.

In Nadroga, an eight-year-old girl is fighting for her life at the Lautoka Hospital after she was allegedly hit by a vehicle at Vatukarasa Village.

Police spokesperson, Jokatama Qio said the little girl was walking along the Queens Highway at around 12pm with another 18-year-old teenager when a vehicle allegedly hit them.

He said the teenager was admitted at the Sigatoka Hospital with minor injuries.

Inspector Qio also confirmed that the driver of the vehicle was in Police custody pending investigations.

In the Central Division, an 11-year-old from Nayavu, Wainibuka in Tailevu, was admitted at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital after he was involved in a road accident at Gaji Road in Samabula on Saturday.

Meanwhile, a 46-year-old truck driver is fortunate after he survived an accident with a Probox car near Malolo, Nadi yesterday.

Mr Qio said the two passengers in the Probox car were treated with minor injuries at the Nadi Hospital while the driver did not sustain any injury.
