COTABATO CITY – A provincial correspondent of the Manila Times died in a vehicular crash in Matalam, North Cotabato, late Monday afternoon.

Mohammad “Moh” Saaduddin, 37, son-in-law of Manila Bulletin correspondent Ali Macabalang, figured in an accident along the national highway at about 5:30 p.m.


Macabalang said Saaduddin was driving his motorcycle traveling back home to Kidapawan City from a news coverage in Cotabato City when the accident happened.

Saaduddin’s motorbike rammed the rear of a cargo truck, the Matalam police said.
