TWO persons died in a vehicular accident involving a motorycle and a Ceres bus at a national road along Barangay Dunggoan in Danao City, northern Cebu past 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 15, 2022.

Motorcycle driver Christian Warren Perez Bendaña, 35, single and a cook from CM Enriquez, Barangay Suba, Danao and his backrider and neighbor Jephy Navales, 37 and single, died instantly after being dragged for several meters before the bus driven by Ranilo dela Cruz Miscala, 28, of Barangay Victoria, San Remigio town, stopped.

Master Sergeant Ronald Gomez, Danao City traffic police investigator, told SunStar Cebu that the victims had gone fishing to the neighboring Carmen town and were on their way home when they collided head on with the incoming Ceres bus.

The victims, along with their motorcycle, were pinned under the bus and dragged for several meters resulting in their deaths.

Gomez said the bus driver was the one at fault as he encroached the opposite lane.

Miscala, however, said he did not notice the incoming motorcycle and just heard a loud thud.

Gomez said the victims were wearing helmets during the incident.

Miscala will be facing charge for imprudence resulting to multiple homicide and damaged to property. (BBT, GPL, TPT)
