The 7-year-old boy who was hit by a car when he accidentally crossed the road on Saturday, has been discharged from the Lautoka Hospital.

Police Spokesperson, Naina Ragigia said that the incident occurred along Saru back Road.

The driver is expected to be questioned once we receive the medical reports of the boy.

Police are advising members of the public to practice road safety whilst on the road.

We are advising members of the public to practice safety whilst on the road. Pedestrians need to know that whilst they are on the road, they need to practice ad safety as motorists cannot accommodate pedestrians at the sudden use of crossing the road.

Many times, pedestrians suddenly cross the road without considering the oncoming vehicle and at times, drivers tend to be caught off guard when this happens. At the same time, we are pleading to motorists to be mindful of such pedestrians especially children when they are walking by the roadside.
