Vehicle flips over family gate

A blue pick-up vehicle belonging to the Samoa Water Authority (S.W.A) crashed in front of a family’s house at Tufuiopa on Friday.

According to a post on Facebook by a member of a family, the vehicle flipped over the house's closed gate; those in the home were lucky to escape injury. 

Aumua Eric Poe said in a public message: “Hopefully everyone from this pikiapu (pickup) are okay.

“We can renew the gate damaged but may God be with the lives of those who were injured from this accident in front of my wife’s house.

“I also thank God that none of my 3 kids and any of our family was at home during the accident."

He advised to be cautious on the road.

Policemen and members of the S.W.A helped to tow away the vehicle from the family’s property.

Attempts to secure a comment from the S.W.A and the Ministry of Police were not immediately successful.
