Sawani parents Mukesh Narayan and Mohini Lata cannot believe that their son, Rajiv Narayan,is dead.

When they said goodbye to him on Monday, they did not realise it was their last farewell.

Rajiv, 24, was a taxi driver.

Yesterday morning, his parents were shocked to receive a phone call from the Sawani Police Post that Rajiv had died in a car accident in Baulevu.

An emotional Ms Lata said Rajiv had a brief conversation with her before he left for work.

“I had asked him where he was going, he said he was going to the shop but he didn’t come back after that and we never had any phone call from him or anything,” she said.

“I just can’t believe it, he was always a happy person; never short on jokes.”

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro believes Rajiv was trapped inside the taxi when it plunged into the creek in Waidra, Baulevu.

“The incident occurred this morning shortly after midnight. The victim was returning from dropping a passenger when the vehicle he was driving veered off the road and tumbled into a creek,” Ms Naisoro said.

She said Narayan was rushed to the Nausori Health Centre but he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Rajiv was a student of the Fiji National University studying Information Technology, but Mr Narayan said his son loved cars.

“That’s all he wanted to do, to drive cars,” Mr Narayan said.

Rajiv is the couple’s third and youngest child. Rajiv’s uncle, Anil Prasad said he had gone over to his house at around 7pm.

“He greeted us all and left again quickly saying he had to go back to work,” Mr Prasad said.

Police investigations are underway to determine the cause of the accident.
