Speeding costs lives!

​Drivers should mindful of the lives that they have in their hands when they are on the road.

This was the reprimand given by the Central police commander, Laimo Asi, when speaking about a fatal accident caused by speeding over the weekend.

PPC Asi says a woman was killed while 5 others were seriously injured when a 15-seater bus from Tubuserea was involved in an accident with a 15-seater bus from Rigo.

The accident took place on Thursday, May 4th, at around 6am around the City Mission area.

Police report that the Tubuserea bus was pulling to the side of the road to let off some passengers when the bus from Rigo collided into them.

Asi says the driver of the Rigo bus has been taken into custody and will most likely be charged with dangerous driving and speeding.

He says such accidents are avoidable and stressed the importance of drivers taking care while out on the road.
