A 64-year-old man died instantly in an accident in Ba last night after the vehicle he was traveling in crashed into a parked sugar cane truck.

The man was on his way to the Rarawai mill when the accident happened

The road death toll now stands at 22.

This is the second death in a week involving cane trucks following on the death of a female market vendor in Nadi last week after the car she was traveling in crashed into a cane truck parked on the road side.

And in Labasa a 5-year-old boy is recovering at the Labasa Hospital after he was hit by a taxi.

The boy was attempting to cross the road behind a bus when he was hit. He suffered injuries to his face and legs and was admitted to the hospital.

With the second term school holidays and the busy week-long Hibiscus Festival to start next week, police are advising parents to supervise their children.
