A butcher from San Andres town was killed on Christmas Day when he lost control of his motorcycle and fell into a drainage canal.

San Andres police authorities identified the victim as Damaso Alcarado Arcilla, 44, of barangay Belmonte.

According to the report, a concerned citizen called the police at 6:30 P.M. of Dec. 25, 2018 informing that a man fell into a canal in barangay Bagong Sirang.

Police personnel led by SPO2 Minerna Romero proceeded to the area and verified that Arcilla was sleeping in the “bahay tanod” while under the influence of liquor when he woke up and then drove his motorcycle.

Responding lawmen, barangay officials and the Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (MDRRMO) brought the victim to the Juan M. Alberto Memorial District Hospital but he was pronounced dead on arrival by Dr. Gibson Gabitan due to a serious head injury.

Three days earlier in Bato town, two persons were injured when a sport utility vehicle collided with a speeding motorcycle along the national highway in barangay San Andres.

The police said the Isuzu Crosswind (XMS 567) owned by one F. Cordial of San Vicente, Panganiban and driven by Julius Valencia, 44, of Caramoan, Camarines Sur, was carrying one Rowena Cordial Alfon, 49, also of Caramoan, as passenger when the incident occurred at 5 A.M. of Dec. 22, 2018.

The SUV bound for Virac allegedly encroached on the lane of the Kymco motorcycle then heading in the opposite direction and collided with it.

The collision injured motorcycle driver Florence Taopo, 19, a student from Sipi, Bato, who sustained abrasions and contusions in the different parts of her body, and backrider John Joseph Taopa, 19, a student of Panglaw, San Miguel, who was wounded on the right leg. They were brought to the Bato Maternity and Children’s Hospital for treatment.
