Prasad faces three different counts related to dangerous driving

A 24-year-old driver who al­legedly landed 10 people at Labasa Hospital on Christ­mas Eve appeared at Labasa Mag­istrates Court yesterday.

Shonal Prasad, who was facing three different counts related to dangerous driving, appeared be­fore Magistrate Jeremaia Savou.

Police Prosecutor Constable Vishal Verma told the court that the accused was allegedly driv­ing under the influence of alcohol and allegedly drove his four-wheel drive vehicle onto the opposite lane and collided with another vehicle driven by a 51-year-old farmer car­rying five passengers at Vunimoli in Labasa.

Two female passengers sustained injuries and others were treated and sent home from Labasa Hos­pital. Prasad said he wished to en­gage a private lawyer.

He was bailed out on the sum of $300. The case has been adjourned to February 12 for mention.
