A fishing boat skipper and a motorcycle driver landed in the hospital after they were bumped by a hit-and-run Toyota Hi-Lux along the highway in Culianan near the entrance to Guisao Tuesday afternoon.

The victims were identified as Narcisco Baulita  yTabornos, 50, a fishing boat skipper and Arcelito Gabatan y Catibat, 36, driver of a motorcycle.

Both victims sustained injuries in their body and were taken to a hospital for treatment.

Initial investigation disclosed that the two were riding tandem on a motorcycle that was swiped by a Toyota Hi Lux near the entrance to Guisao. The motorcycle crashed and the Hi-Lux did not stop to help the victims.

Some habal-habal drivers tried to chase the hit-and-run vehicle as they shouted at the driver to stop but it ignored the plea.

The habal-habal drivers managed to jot down the plate number of the vehicle which they gave to the police. — Dan Toribio
