A 17-year-old motorcycle driver surrendered to barangay officials hours after hitting an old woman along Pasonanca street last Tuesday.

The victim was identified as Edelisa Pitaluna y Bueno, 84 years old, a widow and resident of Fernandez Drive, Pasonanca.

Sr. Inspector Shellamie Chang, Zamboanga City Police Information Officer, said that the motorcycle driven by the suspect was heading north when it accidentally hit Pitaluna.

The victim was thrown to the ground where she stayed for several minutes before being taken by ambulance to the hospital.

Pitaluna  reportedly suffered from injuries on the head while the driver sped away, going farther north.

Two hours later, the teenaged driver was brought to the Sta. Maria Police Station after reportedly surrendering to Barangay Dulian officials.

The subject was placed under the custody of police for disposition.  (Remus Ong)
