E-trike driver dies, passenger wounded in road mishap

·1 min read

THE Cebu City Transportation Office (CCTO) has always been reminding electric tricycle (e-trike) drivers not to pass through major thoroughfares in the city but their pleas fell on deaf ears.

Aside from that, there is also a joint memorandum circular 2017-001 by the Department of Transportation and the Department of the Interior and Local Government prohibiting all tricycle drivers all over the country from plying the national roads.

On Monday at 6 a.m., August 1, e-trike driver Generoso Rosas Paca, 61, of Barangay Ermita, Cebu City, died in a road accident at the corner of M.J. Cuenco Avenue and T. Padilla Street, Cebu City.

His passenger, Felipa Maurin, 68, of Barangay T. Padilla, suffered injuries.

Paca was hit by a Toyota GL Grandia (SLD 570) driven by Alberto Mobe Andon, 47, of Barangay Buhisan, Cebu City, and a Mitsubishi L300 FB type vehicle driven by Pilet Completado, 39, of Barangay Canaocanao, in the northern Cebu town of Tabogon.

Completado also sustained injuries.

Andon was temporarily put under police custody. (REV, TPT)
