It was bad enough they got into an accident.

And then when the drivers nearly got into a scuffle at Vailoa yesterday, it quickly became a scene of interest for members of the public.

The vehicles involved in the crash was a mini-van and a taxi.

The Police are investigating.

But a bystander said the situation quickly got ugly.

“Lucky they didn’t bring any passengers,” he said.

“The taxi was heading from the road at Vailoa and the mini-van was coming from Vaitele heading towards Apia.” 

“So the taxi was supposed to give way to the mini-van but instead, it came straight out of the Vailoa Road and that’s when the mini-van crashed into it.”

But another eyewitness had a different story.

 “The mini-van should have given the taxi the chance to go instead. But he didn’t and the crash is the result.”

“Both the drivers go out and started arguing.”

No one was injured.

And it was good that the Police arrived immediately.
