A minor died when his motorcycle collided with a canter truck at the Gustilo Boulevard in Cadiz City, Negros Occidental, Saturday, traffic investigator Police Officer 2 Richard Legada said yesterday.
Danilo Aladdin III, 15, of Andrea Village in Brgy. Zone 2, Cadiz City, was thrown off about eight meters away from his motorcycle and was killed on impact.
He was not wearing the required helmet.
Investigation showed that Aladdin was driving a red Kawazaki Aura motorcycle on his way home and was turning left of the road when it collided with the canter truck loaded with sand and driven by Isidro Caralles, 39, of Magsaysay Street, Brgy. Mabini, Cadiz City.
Caralles brought Aladdin to the Cadiz City Emergency Clinic but he was later transferred to the Pablo O. Torre Memorial Hospital in Bacolod City, where he died while being treated.
Caralles surrendered to the Cadiz City police, where he is being temporarily held, while the family of Aladdin is yet to decide whether they will file a case or will agree to a settlement with the truck owner.
Under Republic Act 4136, minors are not allowed to drive any motor vehicle. *APN
