I was reading the news today when I noticed a news story about a vehicular accident happened in city of Tandag in Surigao del Sur. The news caught my interest since I came from Surigao del Sur, particularly in the town of San Agustin.
According to the Inquirer, 4 people died in the accident when the dump-truck they’re riding crashed into a house along the Provincial Road of Cabiles Subdivision in the village of Telaje, Tandag City after side-sweeping a tricycle. Two of the fatalities are students of Jacinto P. Elpa High School of Tandang City.
The fatalities are identified as:
- Jerome Domingues (third year high school student)
- Roberto Gabe Jr. (third year high school student)
- Cornelia Mocay
- Sherly Acevedo
I just want to correct that the city’s name is not Tandang but Tandag.
I just want to take note that the name of the truck driver according to the Inquirer’s story is Virgelio Bolonia Corlit, and the students are hitch-riding the dump-truck in which the fatalities were at the top of the truck and the other two students injured, Joseph Ramirez and Julius Vellescas seated at the front. The driver of the tricycle is Ryan Policarpio.
GMA-News on the other hand reported the same vehicular accident. But in its news report it said that the driver of the truck who is now being tracked by the authorities is Ryan Policarpio and the fatalities are reported as the residence of the house smashed by the truck.
