Three killed in highway hit and run accident


Three persons were killed in a hit and run accident along the west coast highway in barangay Sinunuc last Monday.
Police Station 8 Commander Chief Inspector Hingming Ladjaali identified the fatalities as Tarhata Sabdani Tenorio, of legal age and a resident of Tetuan;  Hamierto Sakandal y Sabdani and Iskandal Sakandal y Sabdani, natives of Jolo, Sulu.
Reports disclosed that the three were on board a Honda 125 scooter type motorcycle with temporary plate number 090111 driven by Tenorio with the two men as backriders when the accident happened.
Upon reaching the area fronting the Zamboanga Square Garden, Tenorio tried to overtake a vehicle in front of them while encroaching on the opposite lane.
Tenorio suddenly lost control of the steering bar, throwing all three passengers in the middle of the road.
At that moment, a pick-up type vehicle came speeding from the opposite direction and ran over the victims.
All three victims were brought to the Zamboanga City Medical Center but were pronounced dead by attending physicians.
Ladjaali told Zamboanga Today that all efforts are being exerted to identify the driver and owner of the pick-up vehicle.
"We are trying to collect all footages of the closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera along the highway to establish the type of vehicle driven by the suspect," Ladjaali said.
The investigation is still ongoing.  (Eugene A. Lasprilla)
