And man in custody over the road death

 

A 20-year-old man, who was alleged to have been involved in road accident in Taveuni last Friday night  where a 22-year-old man was killed, is still in Police custody.

This was confirmed by Fiji Police Force spokesperson Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri yesterday.

Based on their earlier reports that a woman named Vilisi Sukaiverata, had died at the scene, Police have since clarified that a man named Orisi Taylor was in fact the vicitm.

Yesterday’s report was based on information given by the Police.

Inspector Sokomuri said: “Orisi Taylor, died in this accident at Dromoninuku, Southern Coastal Road in the island.

“They were returning from a birthday party when the vehicle plunged down a cliff before landing in a creek at around 10pm last Friday night.

“We are yet to establish the cause of the accident,” he said.

A post-mortem examination on the vicitm would be conducted today, Police said.
