MANILA -- A man died after his motorcycle collided with a bus along Quirino Highway in Barangay San Manuel, San Jose del Monte, Bulacan Sunday.

The victim was identified as Peter Coral, 23. He was declared dead upon arrival at the hospital.

The Jayross bus was on its way to Fairview, Quezon City when the motorcycle collided with its left bumper, police said.

According to traffic enforcers who saw the incident, the motorcycle was unstable before it collided with the bus, which slightly changed its lane because of the sloping road.

The victim's family admitted that Coral was drunk and that he was not wearing a helmet when the incident happened.

The bus driver immediately surrendered to the police. He is currently under investigation. -- report by Dexter Ganibe, DZMM
