A laundrywoman died after she was accidentally bumped by a speeding vehicle in Maasin last Friday afternoon.

Killed was Arwella Delos Reyes y San Juan, 59, married, of Zone 2, Barangay Maasin.

Initial investigation disclosed that a Nissan van bearing plate number PIU 917 driven by Mohammad Molddazier Panay y Abdulhamid was cruising along the highway in Maasin heading west around 3:10 p.m when the accident happened.

Police said Delos Reyes suffered broken bones and died on the spot.

Panay was held by the police while the case remains under investigation. – Dan Toribio Jr.
