The driver of a parked sugar cane truck alleged to have caused the death of a 64 year-old man yesterday in Ba will appear in the Ba Magistrates Court today.

The deceased was driving to the Rarawai Mill when he crashed into the truck that was parked on the road side because of mechanical faults.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the driver of the sugar cane truck has been charged for the offence of Reckless and Negligence Act of the Crimes Decree no. 44 of 2009 and will appear under police custody.

The police are once again appealing to motorists to be careful when using the road and also when parking their vehicles, especially during the cane harvesting season.
 
The road death toll currently stands at 24, compared to 25 for the same period last year.
