CRASH SURVIVOR: One of the survivors, Keneti Kosi is one of two men fighting for their lives at the hospital.

Two men are still in critical condition after a horrific crash at Tuanaimato on Tuesday.

Police Spokesperson, Maotaoalii Kaioneta Kitiona, said the men are in such a critical condition they have not been able to talk. 

“We are waiting on them (men) to wake up and when they’re able to talk, we will try and get some information from them,” he said.

“We don’t know for sure what caused the accident so those two men are the only ones who know exactly what happened.”

Eyewitnesses, however, told the Samoa Observer that the truck was going too fast.

A Fire and Emergency Services Authority official said the truck had faulty breaks and the driver lost control of the vehicle.

 The truck driver is from the village of Lepea.
