A concerned single mother is calling for justice after her son sustained injuries in a hit and run accident on Good Friday.

Tokasa Marama says because of this, her son was not able to make it to school today and sit for his exams.

Marama says this happened when they were crossing the road after they had gotten off a bus at the big intersection in Nakasi.

She says a blue vehicle was speeding, hit her son and rushed off again.

Marama says she was so shocked and could not see the number plate.

She says seeing her son cry was much more heartbreaking but with the help of the by-standers, a rental car stopped and took them to Nakasi Police Station and then to Nausori Health Centre.

Marama says the officers that took her report and the doctor that saw her son had both said that he was so lucky to have survived.

Police have yet to confirm if they have located the driver of the vehicle.
