A woman was killed while a motorcyclist was injured in a road accident in Barangay Curuan last Monday afternoon.

The fatality was identified as Marissa Kaylaluay. Injured was Ismael Jabiri. Both were from Buenavista.

Police said that Jabiri was driving a motorcycle with Kaylaluay riding on the back when they were accidentally bumped by a Toyota Hilux driven by Apollo Diaz of Talisayan.
Initial investigation showed the Hilux pick-up truck was traveling from Zamboanga Sibugay to the city around 5:20 p.m. when the motorcycle driven by Jabiri suddenly crossed the highway in Curun resulting in a collision.

Jabiri and Kaylaluay were thrown away from the motorcycle due to the strong impact. They sustained injuries in their body.

Helpful residents rushed the victims to the hospital where Kaylaluay expired while undergoing treatment.

Jabiri was confined for further treatment.
