Mystery surrounds crash involving Vanuatu police chief's car

A man who drove the Vanuatu police commissioner's car is being investigated after the vehicle collided with a power pole and the driver left the scene.

Commissioner Albert Nalpini told the Daily Post newspaper that he had the man drive him home from a function and on the return journey the driver is believed to have hit the pole.

The Minister of Home Affairs, Andrew Napuat, said he was still waiting for a police report on the accident.

The minister said no one is above the law and the law must be allowed to take its course.
