Speed and alcohol are believed to be factors in a fatal crash in Kolonga, that killed a 38-year-old man from Afā, police said.

The man died instantly when the vehicle he was travelling in hit a coconut tree on Saturday night, Police said.

The crash happened on the main road at around 11.30pm.

It was unclear whether or not there was no one else in the car when it crashed.

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.
