The pedestrian and the two riders sustained injuries and were taken to the hospital but Amurao died while undergoing treatment.

In Lemery town, Jayzel Serwelas, 34, was driving a tricycle along the national highway in Barangay Bukal at around 8:45 a.m. when it was hit from behind by a car driven by Jay Ar Matriano.

Due to the strong impact of the collision, the side wheel of the tricycle hit the gutter, causing the vehicle to turn around and throw off Serwelas. The tricycle driver hit his head on the pavement and died while being taken to the Batangas Provincial Hospital.

The police report said both parties were willing to settle the matter amicably.
