Truck driver charged The driver of the Samoa Rugby Union (SRU)truck that crashed at Vailima last Saturday morning has been charged with da

ngerous driving causing injury. This was confirmed yesterday by Assistant Police Commissioner, Le’aupepe Fatu Pula.

Five Samoa ‘A’ players preparing for the upcoming Pacific Rugby Cup tournament were injured in the accident. Le’aupepe said a court date for Paulo Petelo has yet to be scheduled.
But when Petelo was interviewed by the Samoa Observer soon after the accident on Saturday, he said the vehicle had faulty brakes.

He said he then drove the vehicle straight into a family's wall to stop it from speeding down hill.
The group had just left their training venue at the Bahai church grounds to return to Apia when the incident occurred.
