Teen-ager killed by speeding truck


A 17-year-old pedestrian was killed after he was accidentally hit by a speeding 10- wheeler Isuzu mixer truck along the national highway in Barangay Sinunuc, this city on Friday.

The vehicular victim was identified as Al-Sharif Aman y Sali, a resident of Purok 3, Barangay Sinunuc, this city.

Police said that Aman sustained injuries in his right leg and thigh and was brought to Brent Hospitat but the attending physician Dr. Jehan Jabarani declared him dead at 12:19 p.m. while undergoing treatment.

Investigation conducted by Police Station 8 showed that the truck bearing plate number JVF 280 and driven by Donald Gregorio y De Leon, 42, married, a resident of Sitio Miluao, Barangay Patalon, this city, was travelling along Sinunuc Highway when the vehicular accident occurred at about 8:30 a.m.

Investigations revealed that the victim suddenly crossed the highway where he obviously failed to notice the incoming 10-wheeler truck.

The truck driver was detained at the police station while further  investigation is still being conducted. Also, the truck was impounded pending the filing of appropriate case against the truck driver.

A case for reckless imprudence resulting to homicide is now being readied by the police investigators against him in court. (Eugene A. Lasprilla)
