The Fiji Police Force is conducting a probe into an alleged Police vehicle accident where three Police officers were treated and discharged at the Savusavu Hospital.

This was confirmed by Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro yesterday. An internal and traffic investigation was ongoing.

The accident allegedly happened on the night of March 1, along the Buca Highway in Cakaudrove.

The driver and two passengers were returning to Savusavu when their vehicle allegedly tumbled near Nukutoso Settlement.

The three have since been treated at Savusavu Hospital and discharged.

One of the officers suffered a cut above an eye and a fractured hand.

“The Police Commissioner Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho has always been clear about his expectations on the care of vehicles,” Ms Naisoro said.

“This also applies to the supervision aspect of drivers which is why he has been addressing the issue of leadership at all levels.

“While both investigations are ongoing, the Commissioner’s stand on vehicle accidents is always on this: ‘Our drivers need to be responsible at all times and those in command also need to take responsibility for the officers under their command and valuable assets such as vehicles’.”
