A MOTORCYCLE driver died after being hit by a dump truck along Plaridel Street near the Cansaga Bay Bridge in Barangay Paknaan, Mandaue City early dawn on Thursday, July 28, 2022.

The victim was identified as Teodoro Anam-Anam, Jr., 28, a resident of Barangay Tayud, Consolacion, while the truck driver is Raul Ferrater, 42, of Barangay Catarman, Liloan in northern Cebu.

Master Sergeant Rolando Gelido from the Traffic Enforcement Unit (TEU) of Mandaue City said both motorists were heading toward Barangay Tayud when Anam-Anam overtook the truck's left side and accidentally hit a plastic barrier.

The impact caused him to fall into the pavement and be ran over by the truck.

Master Sergeant Richard Suycano, TEU chief, said the road where the incident occurred was under construction by the Department of Public Works and Highways.

In an interview with reporters, Ferrater said he did not notice Anam-Anam's presence until he heard a loud cracking sound.

Ferrater said he immediately asked his helper to check what was going on and they were both shocked to see Anam-Anam lying lifeless on the ground.

Ferrater is now temporarily placed under police custody. (HIC)
