One dead in Sogeri crash

Central police have confirmed a death following a bus accident along the Sogeri road over the weekend.

Central police commander Laimo Asi says the death took place when a hired PMV bus got into an accident outside the Rouna 4 area.

Unfortunately, Asi could not provide additional details as his traffic officers are yet to finalise the initial site report.

The PPC only confirmed that the bus was on hire from a church group at the time of the incident.

Asi says the initial time of the incident was at 7pm but not much detail of the incident was given as yet to his office.

The PPC says people must take precaution at this time and ensure that the drivers they use are safety conscious as well as confident in the routes they take.

A more detailed report into the incident should be made available soon by Central traffic office.
