A 37-year-old welder was crushed by a bus he was conducting repair works to at the S Nairs bus depot at 9 miles in Nasinu yesterday.

The deceased who was doing repair works underneath the bus was rushed to the CWM Hospital in Suva by his colleagues where he was pronounced dead upon arrival.

Fiji Police spokesperson, Ana Naisoro said, “It is alleged that a 24-year-old mechanic instructed a 17-year-old to turn on the steering as he wanted to tighten the dragging arm.

"Upon turning on the steering wheel, the bus suddenly jerked in front and the rear tyre went over the deceased."
