A 10-year-old class 5 student of Bhawani Dayal Primary School died after she was bumped by a car at 9 ½ miles along Kings Road, Nakasi yesterday afternoon.

Police Spokesperson, Inspector Joasaia Weicavu said that the post mortem will be conducted today.

This fatal accident happened after school hours yesterday afternoon hence, we again wish to reiterate to drivers to be more careful when driving near school vicinities.

We again advise drivers to be more vigilant and take more care when driving near school vicinities especially during after school hours in the afternoon and before the school starts in the morning.

Some students may run across the road soon after getting off the bus. Parents and guardians are advised to warn their children on road safety measures and to avoid playing on the road on their way home from school.

Inspector Weicavu said the road death toll stands at 9 compared to 13 for the same period last year.

Police investigations continue into the fatal accident.
