A six-year old boy alighting from a tricycle was hit from behind by a motorcycle in Bato town, causing him to be confined at the hospital.

The accident occurred at 7 A.M. of April 21, 2019, while Nathan Rojas, a kinder pupil from San Roque, was alighting from a tricycle along the road at barangay Batalay when he was accidentally sideswiped by the motorcycle driven by student Christian Bernal, 15.

Meanwhile, the motorcycle driver who died in a head-on collision with another motorbike in Pandan last Easter Sunday turned out to be a member of the Philippine Army’s civilian militia.

The official report from the Pandan police showed that Lorenzo Trinidad, 24, a resident of barangay Libod who was killed in the mishap, was a member of the Civilian Active Auxiliary assigned at the Baldoc detachment and the 83rd IB Alpha Company in Tariwara.

Both Trinidad and the driver of the other motorcycle, Jose Agripa, 48, had no license to drive at the time of the incident.

Injured in the mishap were Trinidad’s backriders: his wife Lain Trinidad, 22, and one Michaekl Agripa, 31, also of Libod.

The white Toyota Hi-Ace utility vehicle (NCJ9344) belonging to the Gigmoto Transport Service Cooperative (GITSCO) was travering the national road at 5:50 A.M. of April 27, 2019 when the sleepy driver allowed the vehicle to hit the left side railing and concrete post.
