A man and his four-year-old son were injured after they were “hit-and-run” by a Fuso Wing van along Lobregat highway in Cabaluay last Thursday morning.
The victims were identified as Peter Melvin Tan y Alarcon, 39, and son Mark, both residents of Cabaluay.

Initial investigation disclosed that Tan and his son had just alighted from a passenger jeepney and were about to cross the highway, when a speeding Fuso Wing van sideswiped them.

The van sped away despite the incident while the victims were taken to the hospital.

A follow-up operation caried out by the police resulted in the recovery of the van in Sitio Daap, Sangali.
Police said the driver of the van escaped.

The Sangali police led by Chief Insp. Elmer Acuña were still trying to locate the driver.—Dan Toribio Jr.
