A 25-year-old man died in a road accident in Barangay Limpapa last Tuesday afternoon.

The fatality was identified as Alvin Rojas y Macapili.

A police report disclosed that Rojas and his cousin Louie Macapili y Poliquit, 22, were heading for Labuan around 3:20 p.m. aboard separate motorcycles.

However, Rojas accidentally hit the rear of the motorcycle driven by Macapili. He lost control of the steering bar and crashed on the road.
Rojas’ head hit the steel safety barrier of the road. He was taken to the Labuan Hospital and was later transferred to the Zamboanga City Medical Center where he was declared dead on arrival due to broke bones and head injuries.

Both motorcycles were impounded at the central police station for further investigation. — Dan Toribio Jr.
