A driver who was involved in what appeared to be a bizarre three-vehicle smash accident yesterday is recovering at the Lautoka Hospital.

Pictures on social media show that a truck, a minivan and a car were involved in the smash.

The rear end of the car was hoisted on top of the side of the truck while the driver’s side was smashed by the minivan.

The incident happened in Waqadra, Nadi, between 1:30 pm to 2:00pm, holding up traffic with a crowd watching as the National Fire Authority arrived to sort out the situation.

Police confirm that the driver of the private vehicle was overtaking the truck when it collided with the minivan coming from the opposite direction and the vehicle was then smashed between the truck and the minivan.

The driver of the private vehicle suffered a fractured leg and is admitted at the Lautoka Hospital, Police said.

There were seven others who were taken to hospital for treatment and allowed to go home.

The truck driver was not injured.
