MANILA, Philippines – Rescuers rushed an old man to a hospital after he was hit by a motorcycle on Saturday morning in Quezon City.

Victim Andy Calima, 75, was brought to a hospital by a Quezon City ambulance, a Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) officer said.

The accident happened around 8 a.m. along Araneta Avenue near Quezon Avenue.

Suspect Jerson delos Santos of Valenzuela City also sustained injuries and was treated by the MMDA’s medical staff.

“Nakipagpatentero sa amin. Mabagal lang po ako magpatakbo. Talagang salubong siya sa akin. Hindi siya muna naghintay na wala nang sasakyan talagang humabol siya sa mga sasakyan,” stressed delos Santos. Report from Dennis Datu, dzMM
