A newly-wed couple from Lautoka was involved in a road accident at Navo, between Sigatoka and Nadi at noon yesterday

The couple, travelling in a car towards Lautoka, was involved in the accident when their car crashed head-on with an oncoming vehicle which failed to get back to its lane after overtaking another vehicle.

Nilesh Goundar, who was also travelling towards Sigatoka, claimed the vehicle which caused the accident was travelling at a high speed.

He later rushed the accident victims including the couple to the Nadi Hospital.

“The vehicle that was travelling towards Sigatoka was speeding and went out of control when it overtook another vehicle,” Mr Goundar said.

Fiji Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro confirmed that four people were involved in the accident.

“Four passengers received treatment at the Nadi Hospital with one in critical condition,” Ms Naisoro said.

“The person in critical condition is the driver for one of the vehicles,” she said.

Police and firefighters were quick to the scene and controlled traffic to ensure the safety of commuters.
