THE road death toll currently stands at 13 compared to 9 for the same period last year.

This after a 23-year-old man was a victim of a motor vehicle accident after he was bumped by a car along the Lodoni Road in Tailevu at around 4am last Sunday.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said a call was received at the Korovou Police Station after the victim from Burerua Village was found lying motionless on the side of the road a few hours later.

“Information provided by a member of the public who noticed the damage on the accused’s vehicle led to his arrest,” Ms Naisoro said.

The accused is expected to appear at the Nausori Magistrates Court today.
