A 10-year-old girl died after she was allegedly accidentally thrown out of a moving vehicle yesterday, according to Police.

The incident occurred after 5pm on the Naqoro Flats, Kings Road, in Rakiraki.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said the vehicle was driven by a relative.

She said initial information so far was that she was thrown out of the vehicle because she was sitting at the back of the vehicle.

A person is being questioned at the Rakiraki Police Station.

The girl, who was identified as Lanieta Sigatabu, was found by a passerby.

Ms Naisoro said they were still trying to establish what exactly happened.

It is believed she was from Ovalau Village in Nasau, Ra.

Though someone passing by had found her, it is believed no one saw exactly what happened.
