A RIDER died when his motorcycle hit another motorcycle in Escalante City, Negros Occidental Tuesday evening, March 3.

Killed was Joseph Saga, 47, while injured was Felix Lesondra, 44.

Investigation showed that Saga was on his way home when the accident happened.

Upon reaching South Avenue along the national highway in Barangay Balintawak, the victim suddenly made a left turn.

Due to the impact, Saga was thrown away and sustained serious injuries. Lesondra also fell from his motorcycle.

They were brought to a hospital but Saga did not survive, he was declared dead on arrival.

The other rider is still recuperating.
