The national vice president of the Fiji Taxi Association, Praveen Singh, has been remanded in custody following an accident he was allegedly involved in on Sunday.

Singh, 36, allegedly fled from the accident scene in Rakiraki after the vehicle he was driving crashed head-on with another vehicle.

He was allegedly avoiding Police until he was arrested at his home in Vatumami, Rakiraki on Tuesday.

A passenger of the vehicle suffered injuries and had to be taken to the Rakiraki Hospital.

Prior to this another vehicle had to swerve out of harm’s way to avoid a allegedly head-on collision with the vehicle driven by Singh.

He was charged and appeared in the Ba Magistrate’s Court yesterday before Magistrate Mosese Naivalu.

Police prosecutor Corporal Nitesh Kumar read out the three charges of dangerous driving, dangerous driving occasioning grievous bodily harm and failure to comply with requirements following an accident.

Magistrate Naivalu remanded Singh in custody until December 14 when the case would be called again for mention.

Singh is also the former president of the Rakiraki Taxi Association.
