Brit's mishap victim dies

One of the two men injured when the motorcycle they were riding was hit by a vehicle driven by a British national in front of Lopue's Mandalagan, Bacolod City, Sunday, died while being treated at a hospital yesterday.

The brother of Vincent Datu of Brgy. 1,  Bacolod informed the Traffic Management Unit that he had passed away at about 5:40 p.m. yesterday, traffic investigator Police Officer 2 Daniel Matias Ballestoros told the DAILY STAR last night.

Datu and his friend, Julius Cordova, of Camella Homes Subdivision, Brgy. Mandalagan, a call center agent, were both confined at the Intensive Care Unit of the Pablo O. Torre Memorial Hospital since Sunday.

Investigation showed that the two were on a motorcycle driven by Datu and were heading north of Lacson Street when the Toyota Innova of Philippe Barthlemey, 44, of Town and Country Homes subdivision, in Talisay City, Negros Occidental hit their rear.

Ballesteros said Barthlemey's vehicle dragged the motorcycle about a hundred feet from the point of impact. Barthlemey, who owns a driving school, shouldered the hospital bills of Datu and Cordova, he added.

Ballesteros said, that according to his sister, Cordova's condition is still not stable.*APN
