A seven-year old Labasa boy is the latest road fatality.

The accident happened at Airport Road in Waiqele outside Labasa Town yesterday.

Reginald Simmons was travelling with his aunt and cousins to Waiqele to attend a family party.

Reginald’s aunt Jasmine Simmons and cousin Rusiate Ravuso were almost too shocked to speak to the Fiji Sun when approached for details.

Jasmine said that Reginald ran across the road when they reached their destination.

“When the bus stopped I could not stop him as he run out of the bus and across the road when this bus travelling from town hit him,” Simmons said.

Reginald was rushed to emergency yesterday afternoon but was pronounced dead on arrival.

A shocked Ms Simmons said that the accident happened so fast. She could not get over the fact that her favourite nephew was gone.

Reginald was a Year Two student of a prominent school in Labasa.

Divisional Police Commander Northern Shiri Bhawan Singh said said that the police have received the report of the accident while investigations continue.
