A man and his brother-in-law were killed in a fatal highway mishap along Maria Clara Lobregat (MCLL) Highway in Cabaluay last Wednesday night.

Sangali Police Station Commander Chief Insp. Chester Natividad identified the fatalities as Jayson Juanito y Delos Santos and his brother-in-law Ramillano Delos Reyes y Perez, both residents of Lumbangan.

Juanito died on the spot while Delos Reyes was declared dead on arrival at the hospital.

Investigation showed that the two victims were riding tandem on an XRM motorcycle driven by Juanito when they encroached on the opposite lane upon reaching the Cabaluay portion of the highway.

During that time,  a passenger bus driven by Henry Penticase y Omandan hit the motorcycle, throwing both victims away from the vehicle.

Both sustained fractures on different parts of the body which caused their death.

The bus driver was placed under police custody while both vehicles were impounded at the Sangali Police Station. – Dan Toribio
