A 21-year-old motorcycle driver was killed after he was hit by a truck at the national highway in Brgy. Blumentritt, Murcia, Negros Occidental, Wednesday, September 21.
Killed was Andrie Ditching of Brgy. Blumentritt.
Police said the motorcycle driver overtook two sugarcane trucks he was following, but had to slow down and return to his lane because of a parked truck on the side of the road.
He failed to notice that one of the trucks was being towed, so he hit the tow bar, fell from his motorcycle and was run over.
The two truck drivers are detained at the police station.*
