A man was killed after his motorcycle accidentally slammed straight into an incoming minibus along a national road in Sagbyan on Thursday morning.
Police Officer 3 Anthony Vistal of the Sagbayan police identified the fatality as Diosdado Maestrado, Jr., 65, a resident of Barangay Villa Arcayo, Carmen and a member of the Bantay Bayan Bohol Province Crime Watch.
According to Vistal, Maestrado was travelling from Carmen to the central district in Sagbayan when he suddenly lost control of his motorcycle along a sharp curve at an area dubbed “Sitio Likoan.”
The ill-fated motorcycle then collided head on against the minibus of Anilus Lines.
According to the bus’s driver, Vincent Pandan, he immediately stepped on the brake after noticing the out-of-control vehicle heading towards him.
However, Maestrado still barreled towards the bus leading to the collision.
Vistal said that Maestrado sustained injuries in his head.
He was still rushed to a nearby hospital but was declared dead on arrival.
According to Vistal, Maestrado had with him a helmet but did not wear it.
Had Maestrado worn the protective headgear, he may have still been saved, said Vistal. (AD)
