A woman in her 40s from Nabavatu Village and a 16year old student died following a motor vehicle accident in the Northern Division yesterday.
The incident occurred along the Labasa/Nabouwalu Highway near Nabavatu yesterday.
The two victims were walking along the road when a man in his 30s from Namaka, Nadi allegedly lost control of the truck he was driving when he failed to negotiate a bend.
As a result the truck tumbled causing the logs to fall from the vehicle whereby it hit the two victims who were by the side of the road.
The two were rushed to the Dreketi Health Center where they were sadly pronounced dead on arrival.
The driver is admitted at the Labasa Hospital under observation as investigations continue
