CEBU, Philippines —  A 69-year-old woman died while her 70-year old husband was injured after they were figured in a road accident Thursday night while riding a bicycle along the national highway in Poblacion, Medellin.

The fatality was identified as Benedicta Baring while the husband was identified as Felix Baring, both residents of Barangay Daanlungsod of the said town.

Police Corporal Rosano Quedding, desk officer of the Medellin Police Station, said the couple was about to go home when the bicycle they were riding was hit by a motorcycle driven by Jose Roel Nalzaro, 22, a resident of the place of the incident.

Both parties involved were traveling in the same direction.

"Mao to nga aksidente nga naigo, nabundolan sa kining ga motor mao to’ng nangalamba," said Quedding.

The couple and the motorist were rushed to the nearest hospital but Benedicta was declared dead on arrival while her husband and Nalzaro sustained injuries but in stable condition.

Benedicta has accordingly died due to traumatic brain injury.

"Murag nabunal jud ang iyang ulo (Benedicta). Ang babaye nagsakay sa luyo, nag-backride siya sa lingkuran sa bike," said Quedding.

Initial investigation revealed that Nalazaro was not running on high speed and was just about to overtake when he hit the couple's bicycle.

Nalzaro is now under the police custody.

Quedding further said that initially, Felix and Nalzaro have already met at the police station to settle the incident. — GMR (FREEMAN)
