Pastor dies after motorcycle hit by 10-wheel truck in Tubigon


A 53-year-old pastor died after his motorbike was accidentally hit from behind by a 10-wheeler truck along a national highway in the town of Tubigon after 5 p.m. Tuesday.

Ruben Jusol, a resident of the town of Calape, has always been rushed to hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival, Tubigon Police Chief Major Robert Lucernas said.

Jusol was on his way to Calape when the truck behind him suddenly hit him from behind.

Lucernas said the driver of the truck, identified as Pedro Fudulig, 58, was “in bad shape” because he lost control of the vehicle.

“Nakita nato na luya gyud siya [Fudulig], galain jud kuno iyang lawas… Mura’g sa tan-aw namo wala siya his condition, luya siya mura’g taas og blood pressure, ”Lucernas said.

The police chief added that other people on the truck also noted that Fudulig was already traveling at high speed even before the incident.

“Nahibong sila ngadto ang drinivan, dili man kuno ngadto siya mo drive. Kadto ra kunong higayuna, gikuyawan gud sila, ”Lucernas said.

According to the police chief, Fudulig remained detained at the Tubigon police station.

He was to be charged with reckless recklessness which resulted in a homicide on Thursday.

However, the authorities were still awaiting a possible settlement between the victim’s family and Fudulig. (A. Doydora)
