A FEMALE motorist was killed after she was ran over by a truck in Barangay Maguikay, Mandaue City Sunday evening, September 5, 2021.
The motorist was identified as Merlita Lacdaying, a resident of Barangay Mabolo, Cebu City.
The incident happened on MC Briones St., Barangay Maguikay, Mandaue City around 9:40 p.m. Sunday.
The driver of the truck was identified as Michael Narisma, 32, of Isabel, Leyte.
Initial investigation revealed that the truck and the motorcycle were both going up the Maguikay flyover when Lacdaying overtook the truck driven by Narisma.
Lacdaying, however, lost control of the motorcycle, causing her to crash on the road. Her body was ran over by the truck.
Narisma told Superbalita Cebu that before going up the flyover, he looked at the side mirror to check whether a motorist is on his right but he did not see Lacdaying.
He said he was shocked upon hearing a loud thud on the right side of the truck, prompting him to stop the vehicle.
Lacdaying was rushed to the Mandaue City Hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.
Narisma was temporarily detained at the Mandaue City Police Office. (KFD)
