Police are on the scene of a two-vehicle crash in Tufumāhina, Tongatapu this evening Sunday 4.

Our correspondent in Tonga said there were injuries but he could not confirm their conditions and the number of people being injured after the accident which occurred at about 11pm.

The crash came after Kaniva News reported an apparent single-vehicle rollover crash on a main road in ‘Umutangata, Fo’ui this morning.

Two women and a man were rushed to hospital in serious conditions, one report said.

That incident came after five people died last week in two separate vehicle crashes.

As Kaniva News reported, three people died in Tongatapu in a two-vehicle crash.

Two days later a single-crash in Neiafu, Vava’u claimed two lives.

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

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
