A 20-year-old man riding his bicycle was killed after he was accidentally hit in Inabanga by a unit of the Southern Star Bus Company, a bus line under Ceres Liner.

Victim Clinton Bensi, a resident of Barangay Basak, Lapu-Lapu City, died on the spot, said authorities.

According to PO2 Pollims Cagatin, the incident happened at past 1 p.m. on Monday along Barangay Ubujan, Inabanga.

Bensi along with six other cyclists came from a fiesta in Barangay Libertad, Tubigon when the victim fell to the side and crashed after inadvertently bumping into one of his companions, Cagatin said.

Bensi was then accidentally hit by a Ceres bus which was trailing behind him as he fell.

The victim reportedly did not notice the incoming bus, added Cagatin.

The cyclists were on their way home to Lapu-Lapu City and were headed to the port in Getafe when the accident happened.

Bensi’s remains has been taken to a funeral parlor in Inabanga and is set to be transported to his family in Lapu-Lapu City.

Meanwhile, the bus driver identified as Arman Bulay-og, a 36-year-old resident of Barangay Tanghaligi, Talibon, has been detained at a lock-up jail in Inabanga.

Although Bensi’s family has not expressed intent to file charges against Bulay-og, police are still awaiting their final decision while the driver is still in police custody, said Cagatin. (Allen Doydora)
