QUEZON CITY, Philippines — The tattered remains of a hit-and-run victim were found along Commonwealth Avenue on Friday (August 10) at 12:00 a.m.
The victim was identified as 27-year-old Harlee Kaye Catbagan.
The victim’s friends who were with her when the incident happened said she was heading home from a party when Catbagan suddenly darted into the middle of the highway just as a vehicle was approaching.
“Tatawid po kami galing kami sa kabila at isasakay lang po sana namin. Problema po, pagtawid po dito, tumatakbo na po siya papunta dito na hindi namin alam ang problema,” said Eugene Paul Pusa, friend of the victim.
The victim’s companions speculated that Catbagan may have been intoxicated which would explain her sudden behavior.
“Siguro po sobrang lasing po,” said Cedrick Hernandez,one of the victim’s companions.
The fatal crash happened so fast no one could identify the vehicle that hit Catbagan.
According to Quezon City Traffic Sector, it could have been a truck or a bus that ran her over.
Catbagan’s friends were taken to the traffic sector-5 for investigation while the body of the victim was brought to a funeral home.
Authorities are looking for the CCTV footage of the incident to determine the culprit of the hit-and run. — Reynante Ponte
