Su’a said the case is now closed because the truck driver passed away on Sunday. 

“There is no one to be charged in this case because the only person that could be charged is the driver who died,” said Su’a. 

The driver of the delivery truck belonging to Ah Liki Wholesale, lost control which caused the truck to veer off the road and crash into a 40 ft container next to One and One Mart at Vailoa. 

The driver was admitted to the hospital with two other colleagues with serious injuries.  However, it was the driver who passed away while the other two passengers are still in the hospital.
