An allegedly intoxicated man has been charged after a crash on Taufa’āhau main road in Vainī on Sunday 11.
The Ma’ufanga man was allegedly speeding while driving east on Taufa’ahau road before his van veered off and crashed into a power pole.
The driver and a female passenger were injured.
As Kaniva News reported on Sunday, photos taken at the scene by an eyewitness showed the man and the woman lying motionless outside the van by the roadside.
The photos also showed bystanders, mostly in church attires, gathered to watch and help.
The crash came after a fatal road accident the previous Sunday in Fo’ui which claimed a 36-year-old man’s life.
