A Fijian working in the Cook Islands survived an accident after he was hit from behind by an unknown vehicle.

Originally from Lautoka, Charles Leger, 32, is working with Land Holdings Limited as a tradesman and was on his way to work on his motorbike yesterday. The incident happened around 6 am.

“All I know was that the car behind me hit me. I fell head first on the road,” he said.

“I was bleeding and blood gushing from my head. Lucky for me, two guys who are part of a security company called, Cook Islands Security saw the accident happen. They came to my aid. They stopped the bleeding and took me to the hospital.”

Mr Leger said he was told that he was lucky that his injuries, although serious, were not life-threatening.

Police in the Cook Islands are searching for the vehicle and the driver. Police alleged the driver and its passengers were drunk.

This year, in January, another Fijian, Thomas Riley from Taveuni, died in the Cook Islands when he crashed his bike.
