A woman who appeared to be overly intoxicated drove her grey SUV and crashed into a white sedan on Friday night at the intersection in Mata’utu. 

The sedan was driven by a male in his 30s, who later complained about glass from the smashed windshield piercing his arms and face. 

Eye witness, Peni Langkilde, told the Sunday Samoan at the scene of the accident that the SUV was speeding and took a sharp left turn, consequently crashing into the oncoming sedan. The sedan’s windshield came off at the impact of the collision.

The Ministry of Police has in recent weeks conducted road blocks and appealed to motorists who consume alcohol to use a sober driver or catch a taxi home.
