One person died in a car crash this morning Sunday 18 at about 4am after his car rammed into a container on the roadside.
The road had been closed and a diversion was in place at By-Pass Rd.
According to local reports alcohol was believed to be a factor in the crash.
The road has since reopened, it said.
The fatal crash came after a suspected drunk driver from Vaini lost his life in a fatal car accident on Saturday 10 near Malapo.
Police said a 24-year-old was driving when his 1500 kg pick up van veered off the road and hit a Pulukamu tree.
