Drunk driver responsible for horror night crash

The driver who rear ended two vehicles in Apia during a drunken rage has been charged and will appear in Court on 19 April 2016.

This was confirmed by the Media officer of the Ministry of Police, Maotaoalii Kaioneta Kitiona.

Following the Police investigation, Maota said they have confirmed that the 25-year-old was drunk and he should never have gotten behind the wheel that night.

The accident occurred two weeks ago in-front of the Seana night club where the Nissan X-trail crashed into two vehicles parked on the side of the road. The driver was taken to the hospital where he was given emergency medical treatment.

Maotaoalii added that the high percentage of the alcohol consumed by the driver that night was unacceptable. “Such behavior is unacceptable because it puts the lives of other members of the public at risk,” said Maota. “We want to ask everyone to please be careful and not to drink and drive.”
