A 55 year-old woman died after she was hit by a ten wheeler truck in Leon Postigo, Zamboanga del Norte last Wednesday night.

A police report identified the fatality as Nenita Pumicpic, 54, married, of Barangay Palandoc. Pumicpic succumbed to multiple injuries after she was overrun by one of the truck’s huge tires.

Investigation disclosed that about 3 p.m. Pumicpic was walking together with a companion along the roadside when the 10 wheeler truck sideswiped her and dragged her several meters away.

Witnesses said the truck was running at high speed when it hit the woman killing her instantly. Instead of helping the victim, the truck’s driver sped away.

The truck reportedly came from Zamboanga City and was on its way to Dipolog City when the incident happened. — Noning R. Antonio
