A 51-year-old woman died after her motorcycle was rear-ended by pickup truck along a national road in Barangay Mansasa, Tagbilaran City on Tuesday night.
The fatality, identified as Arlinda Dinorog, 51, of Tagbilaran City was rushed to the Governor Celestino Gallares Memorial Hospital but was declared dead on arrival while the pickup truck’s driver sustained a head injury due to airbag deployment, said Staff Sgt.

Dinorog was hit from behind and run over by the trailing vehicle.
“Matud sa mga witnesses, nabanggaan ning motor unya na kaladkad,” said Narciso.
