A motorcyclist died in a road accident at Km. 22, Barangay Cabaluay last Tuesday night.

Salman Jalani y Nonong, 27, married of Manicahan, sustained injuries in the body and died on the spot.

Initial investigation showed that Jalani was driving his brand new motorcycle from Manicahan heading for the city proper.  Upon reaching Cabaluay at past 6 p.m., he lost control of the steering bar and bumped an incoming passenger van driven by Jakri Kirani y Jalalul, 33, married of Manicahan.

The impact sent Jalani into  the ravine while the van was slightly damaged.

Kirani was placed under police custody as a standard operating procedure while both vehicles were impounded at the Sangali Police Station. — Dan Toribio
