A Lautoka family is in mourning after a fatal collision claimed the life of a 26-year-old woman.
The fatal collision on Saturday at Waimalika, Nadi claimed the life of Ashmita Singh, an employee of the Bank of South Pacific.
The vehicle was driven by a colleague and hit the left side of an on-coming vehicle around 1.15pm.
Mrs Singh was returning to Lautoka from Nadi when the accident happened. The deceased’s sister-in-law Vaishali Kumar said the family was still coming to terms with the sudden loss of a loved one.
“Ms Singh spoke to her husband minutes before the accident that she is returning home,’’ Ms Kumar said.
She said last Friday Mrs Singh had visited her parents in Sigatoka and spent the night there.
“She returned home with her husband on Saturday morning, had breakfast with the family and went to work.
“It was a nightmare for us when the news of her accident was conveyed.
“Ms Singh was a very caring and a humble person and will be dearly missed.
“Her husband, Ricky Vishal Singh, a schoolteacher did not sleep at night,’’ she said.
The family was also making plans to celebrate Mrs Singh’s birthday on May 19.
West police media liaison officer Naina Ragigia said another 30-year old colleague of Mrs Singh was still admitted at the Lautoka Hospital.
She also said the 68-year old driver and the 58-year old passenger in the other vehicle were also admitted at the Lautoka Hospital.
“Investigations are continuing. The national road death toll stands at 13 compared to 11 for the same period last year,’’ she added.
