Two people have died following a vehicle crash on a road in Vava’u this morning.

This has been confirmed to Kaniva news by a Vava’u Police spokesperson.

It is likely the accident occurred between 3 – 4am, he said.

The driver of the vehicle and a passenger died, he said.

A Police team were still at the scene and a statement will be released soon, the spokesperson said.

The fatal crash came after three people were killed in a two-vehicle crash in ‘Atele, Tongatapu on Saturday night.

In that crash, one person died at the scene while two died in hospital few hours later.
