I hope there are no tensions on campus after the accident involving a pregnant woman from Tari and the retaliated murder of an Engan student. Students need to practice humility, care and responsibility when driving. My sympathies go out to the Tari woman and diseased driver, and their families.

Pregnant woman killed

A PREGNANT woman was killed outside her relative’s home at Gerehu in Port Moresby on Friday when a vehicle driven by a final year law student at the University of Papua New Guinea collided with her.
Police confirmed yesterday the student driver was then bashed to death only 20 metres away from where the pregnant mother lay dead.
Police also identified the two other occupants in the car as the dead student’s colleague, a second year law student and a relative, all from Wabag.
The dead woman was from Tari, Southern Highlands Province.
One eyewitness described the accident as a “totally horrific” happening.
The accident happened at Obuta Crescent in Gerehu Stage Two between 6.30pm and 7pm last Friday.
The eyewitness, who hesitated at times in describing the whole scenario, gave an account of what he claimed to have seen before, during and after the crash.
He said it all started from Tauriganiniga Drive 200 metres away from where the deaths occurred.
The eyewitness said he remembered holding onto his two children’s hands near a power pole at the entrance of Obuta Cres when he saw the vehicle travelling down the road from Unaba Street in the satellite suburb.
“All the people walking along the street saw the vehicle coming,’’ he said.
The eyewitness, a driver himself, said the vehicle appeared to have been travelling at between 60 to 70 kilometres an hour.
The eyewitness said the driver may have been upset after the teenager was killed.
He said the car kept travelling along the road, and that people nearby were getting out of its path as the vehicle turned into Obuta Cres and collided with the pregnant woman.
The eyewitness, whose younger brother was the third victim, said he saw the pregnant woman being thrown into the air and falling almost 25 metres away from where she had been sitting.
The witness claimed the pregnant woman had been seen earlier, chatting with neighbours.
She was eight months pregnant, the eyewitness said.
The woman had only arrived a week ago in Port Moresby from Tari to await the birth of her baby when the accident happened.
He said the occupants of the vehicle came out of the car and while one student and his friend dashed for their life, the final year student was unable to escape and was bashed to death.
Police investigations into the tragic accident are continuing.

animals! with no regard for life at all. Does anyone know what an accident is!

Its this kind of attitude that keeps people away from going back to PNG. I dont want my children to grow up in a society where there is no regard for human life, where payback is the only solution to problems. PNG is going backwards, i don't think i want to call PNG home anymore. It sickens to death!

I think the act of paying back is not a solution to any problem. There is always a reason why someone dies. One of the two parties may be in the wrong. The Tari people should assess before throwing fist around...I don't feel good at all-this is an animal act!

Actually the reporter lucks facts! This is a typical example of low quality journalism. Such 'news' must be investigative and not hear-say.

1.Deceased Uni-student is a passenger on the vehicle and not the driver
2.One cannot fly 25meters when a vehicle hits you, unless you are on the car and it over-turns - this is total exaggeration! the vehicle stoped 15-20 meters from where it hit the woman.
3.the Deceased student could runaway however he was trying to negotiate peace! but these vagrants are pigs with lower level of respect! and remember, he was just another passenger and not the driver nor a relo or brother of the driver. he was just innocent as the pregnant woman!

Unfortunately, cruel acts will always deter the destiny of peace loving people.

This is really devesting news and very sad indeed for missing such an innocent life for unlawful attitudes. Which part of enga these students come from? We highlanders do not have a dignity of respect and always take revenge. I wonder how and when we are going to change this kind of attitudes and live as peace and harmony.
