3 youths killed in Cagayan motorcycle accident

BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya – Three minors were killed Sunday after the motorcycle they were riding rammed on an oncoming passenger bus along a highway in adjacent Cagayan province.

Investigators identified the fatalities as Renante Chua, Gerald Sana, and Armando Saribay, all 17 years old and residents of Gonzaga town in Cagayan.

Investigation showed that the victims were on board a single motorcycle traversing the National Highway in Gonzaga’s Ipil village when it encroached at the road’s opposite lane.

According to Chief Inspector Domingo Caday, Gonzaga police chief, an approaching Florida bus driven by Mario Cabuslay, 30, of Novaliches, Quezon City, was unable to avoid the speeding motorcycle.

The victims were immediately brought to a nearby hospital but were pronounced dead-on-arrival.

Cabuslay, now under custody of the police, will be charged with reckless imprudence resulting in multiple homicide, Caday said. - Floro Taguinod/KBK, GMANews.TV
