Incident one:

On Saturday, September 10, between 8am and 9am at Makomako, Seaqaqa Highway, in the Macuata Province five vehicles were involved in an accident.

At least four people including drivers suffered injuries and were taken to the Seaqaqa Health Centre for treatment.

Incident two:

A second road accident took place on the same day around 1.30pm at the Soasoa bend, Wainikoro Road, at Labasa.

A vehicle, driven by a 30-year-old teacher and accompanied by his wife, was returning to Naleba when another vehicle, driven by a 19-year-old student, crossed the opposite lane and collided head-on.

The teacher, his wife and a passenger on the other vehicle all suffered injuries and were taken to the Labasa Hospital for treatment.

However, the couple, Mohinesh Prasad and Niteshni Chand, have been discharged while the other passenger, believed to be a student, remains admitted.
