A man was killed after his motorcycle was hit by a speeding fish carrier truck along the west coast highway in Sinunuc last Tuesday afternoon.
The fatality was identified as Roseller Aguilar Lagarto. He sustained broken bones in the body.

Police said that Lagarto was driving a motorcycle, while the fish carrier driven by Arwin Jose Bugtay Dumayaca, 44, of Tugbungan, was going on the opposite direction, when the accident took place.

Investigation disclosed that Lagarto encroached the lane being used by Dumayaca that resulted in the road mishap.
