2 killed in triple
vehicular accident

Two tricycle riders yesterday died in triple vehicular accidents at the national highway of Brgy. Bubog, Talisay City, Negros Occidental.

Worse, one of the victims was even dragged by an Isuzu Prime Mover truck for about 10 meters from the point of impact, investigations of the Talisay City police traffic showed.

The two victims, riding a Rusi tricycle identified as Alfredo Clemente, 48, and Ricky Lastimoso, 30, both of Talisay City, died on the spot, based on the findings of Dr. Joy Guanzon, who was among those who responded to the accidents, Traffic Investigator PO3 Michael McDowell said in his report to Supt. Joseph Thomas Martir, city police chief.

Investigations of the Talisay police further showed that the tricycle driven by Clemente was travelling south on the inner lane of the highway, when it suddenly moved the outer lane.

In doing so, it sideswiped the Isuzo Crosswind vehicle driven by Eduardo Givera, 55, McDowell said.

The impact resulted in a head-on collision of the tricycle with the Isuzo Prime Mover truck driven by Marvin Amacna.

McDowell said Clemente was thrown from his tricycle while Lastimoso was dragged by the truck. Both sustained fatal head injuries, he added.

Amacna and Givera and their respective vehicles are now under the custody of the Talisay City police, pending further investigations of the accidents.*GPB
