It was a blessed Easter for Samoa with no road fatalities or serious injuries and death from long weekend outings and celebrations.
Police Commissioner Su’a Fuiavailiili Egon Keil confirms Samoa Police made 27 total arrests from Friday to Sunday with 11 of them being DUIs (driving under the influence).
“We received the normal calls for service but considering that it was Easter weekend, it was reasonably quiet,” said Su’a.
Samoa’s Fire and Emergency Services Commissioner Tanuvasa Petone Mauga also confirmed that FESA did not have to respond to any fatal accidents or serious call-outs over the long weekend.
In past years Easter long weekends, Samoa has recorded horrific deaths from drinking sessions gone wrong as well as fatal car accidents.
