LAOAG CITY - A 25-year-old salesman was killed in a motorbike accident along the national highway of Barangay 11, Laoag City on Thursday.

Dominique Cruz was declared dead on arrival by doctors at the Provincial Hospital after suffering severe head injury.

Investigation disclosed that Cruz was on board his motorbike when he crashed into a delivery truck parked along the side of the road.

"Moving north ang victim ng bumangga sa naka-park na delivery truck na nagbaba ng dry goods," said Senior Police Officer 2 Sean Francis Bugaoisan, chief of the PNP-Traffic Division of Laoag City.

Bugaoisan added that Cruz was not wearing his helmet.

"Hindi naka helmet kasi grabe ang sugat sa ulo niya at hindi pa alam kung nakainom ito ng alak," Bugaoisan said.

The family of the victim and the truck driver already settled the case amicably.
