A family escaped serious injuries when a minivan flipped on to its side in central Nuku’alofa this morning Sunday 25.

It happened near the intersection of Taufa’āhau road and Sālote road.

Police were called to the scene and the van was recovered.

Two parents were apparently in the vehicle with children, our correspondent in Tonga said.

Some of them received minor injuries in the crash, he said.

As Kaniva News reported, a man and a woman were rushed to hospital after their vehicle crashed into a power pole in Vainī last Sunday.

That road accident came after a 36-year-old man died in hospital after a Nissan Elgrand crashed into a power pole in Fo’ui the previous Sunday.

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.
