A small vehicle with two passengers crashed into a landcruiser pick-up truck today at the Apia town clock roundabout, just after 12:00pm.

According to on-site witnesses the landcruiser was exiting the roundabout when the smaller vehicle entering the roundabout from infront of Chan Mows, crashed into it.

Witnesses say the driver of the landcruiser looked to be in her 50’s while the smaller vehicle was driven by a male and his passenger estimated to be in their late 30’s.

No serious injuries were sustained by passengers of both vehicles involved in the accident.

Police were quick to respond and arrive on the scene to clear and direct traffic in the area.

The incident comes after a string of recent car accidents across the island.

Last Friday three people were treated at Motootua Hospital for minor injuries and released on the same day, after a two-vehicle collision at Vaigaga. Police say they had responded and prioritised the first response to ensure the safety of drivers and passengers involved, but would be reviewing video footage to determine if charges would be laid.

Samoa Police and the Samoa Fire and Emergency Services Authority continue to urge drivers to slow down, and be safe on the roads.
