A MOTORCYCLE rider who was believed to be drunk crashed into a backhoe and ended up in the hospital.

The incident took place at around 8:50 p.m. on Monday, April 29, 2024, along a barangay road in Barangay Saavedra, Moalboal town, southwest Cebu.

Police identified the victim as Donald Faciol, 33, a resident of the said place.

Police Chief Master Sergeant Stewart Bayang, the investigator of Moalboal Police Station, said the victim was intoxicated at the time of the occurrence.
