The driver of a motorcycle which reportedly collided head on against a pickup truck driven by a doctor who works for a local government unit in Bohol was killed on Thursday due to injuries sustained.
Floro Mahinay, 45, a resident of Brgy. Baucan Sur, Balilihan was driving a Honda XRM when he figured in the fatal accident along Brgy. San Isidro in Tagbilaran City at 5 p.m.
He was travelling along J.A Clarin near the Barangay Hall of San Isidro and was on his way to Corella, authorities said.
