A family is mourning the loss of their child following a road accident yesterday morning.

A 6-year-old boy is believed to have suddenly crossed the road along Vuci Road Nausori when he was bumped by a vehicle driven by a 57-year-old man.

The incident occurred after 8 am and the victim was taken to the Nausori Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

In an unrelated incident, a post-mortem will be conducted to confirm the cause of death of a 52-year-old man of Vuci Road who was a passenger in a vehicle driven by a 40-year-old earlier this month.

It is alleged the suspect had lost control of his vehicle resulting in a collision with another vehicle driven by a 70-year-old man of Nausori.

Following the accident along Vuci Road, the victim had been admitted to the CWM hospital since the 8th of this month and died yesterday morning.

The road death toll currently stands at 52 compared to 61 for the same period last year.
