A 21-year-old i-Taukei man died instantly after he was hit by a bus while walking towards Pacific Harbour with a friend after drinking kava early this morning.

Fiji Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the deceased went onto the road to pick something up when he was hit by a bus traveling towards Suva from Nadi at 2.30am.

The body of the deceased is being kept at the Navua Hospital awaiting post mortem and the bus driver is in police custody for questioning.
 
The Fiji Police is once again pleading to members of the public to be careful on the roads whether they are driving or walking.
 
The road death toll currently stands at 27 compared to 26 for the same period last year.
