MANILA, Philippines — A 20-year-old college student died last Friday, Jan. 4, after a car ran him over as he and three friends were running away from a dog chasing them in Barangay Holy Spirit in Quezon City.

Joshua Cabag had just gone out with his friends to buy food to celebrate his birthday, Chrisha Lingad, a friend of his, told


Cabag was a Secondary Education major at the Batangas State University – San Juan Campus. He was supposed to graduate this June, Lingad said.

Lingad also shared on Facebook a closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage of the incident, which happened at 1:57 a.m.


The video showed Cabag and three others passing a house on Sto. Niño Street when a dog emerged from the gate and chased them.

The group then turned at a street corner that led up to a road where a speeding car hit Cabag.

The driver of the car did not stop.

According to Lingad, Cabag was rushed to the Quezon City General Hospital and was still alive on arrival. But he eventually died.


About an hour before the accident, at 12:02 a.m. Cabag made a post on Facebook mentioning his birthday. /atm
