One person dead after accident in Pahu

One person died in a car crash this morning Sunday 18 at about 4am after his car rammed into a container on the roadside.

The road had been closed and a diversion was in place at By-Pass Rd.

According to local reports alcohol was believed to be a factor in the crash.

The road has since reopened, it said.

The fatal crash came after a  suspected drunk driver from Vaini lost his life in a fatal car accident on Saturday 10 near Malapo.

Police said a 24-year-old was driving when his 1500 kg pick up van veered off the road and hit a Pulukamu tree.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.
