In Tabuk City, a sad accident happened on the evening of October 10, 2023. It was a three-motorcycle collision that resulted in the death of a college student.
This accident occurred around 9:50 p.m. at the intersection of Provincial Road in Bulanao, right in front of Landbank.
The police investigation revealed that two police officers from Tabuk were riding a Yamaha 155. They were heading towards the Davidson Hotel after coming from the white carabao area. While on the provincial road, the Yamaha 155 made a left turn and collided with a speeding Sniper 155 motorcycle.
The impact sent the Sniper 155 about 15 meters away from the crash point, and its male rider, a college student from Barangay Dupag, was thrown about 12 meters from the motorcycle.
The Yamaha 155 lost balance, causing its two female riders to fall to the ground. Tragically, the rider of the Yamaha 155 was hit by another Sniper 155 motorcycle driven by an 18-year-old college student who was following the first Sniper 155.
The injured individuals were quickly taken to the hospital, but sadly, the male operator of the Sniper 155 didn't survive his injuries.
The authorities are currently investigating the accident to understand how it happened and what factors contributed to this tragic collision.
