Gas station pump boy dead in motorcycle crash
KIDAPAWAN CITY — A pump attendant was killed when the motorcycle he was driving crashed against another motorcycle in Barangay Amas here around 6:30 p.m. on Monday.
Reports from the traffic section of Kidapawan City Police Office said John Dua, 27, a resident in the area working at the North Lane Gas Station in Barangay Amas here, was driving home when he bumped into another motorcycle driven by Abesar Valentino, another resident.
Due to the impact, both drivers were thrown to the cemented Davao-Cotabato national highway, said Police Lt. Col. Ma. Joyce Birrey, city police director.
But another motorcycle and a van passing by did not notice Dua, causing them to run over him.
Birrey said Dua was rushed to the provincial hospital but an attending physician declared him dead on arrival.
Valentino is still being treated for injuries.
Belly Brenio, the motorcycle driver, and Jose Sagon Recel Jr., the van driver, who run over Dua, were now in police custody. (Editor: Leti Boniol)
