MANILA, Philippines - A motorcycle rider died after a large roadside tree fell on him in Tiaong, Quezon on Tuesday afternoon.

Victim Romulo Bayan was travelling along a national highway in Barangay Lumingon when a large tree fell directly on him.

Authorities suspect the tree fell after the ground underneath softened due to heavy rains over the past days.

They also learned that Bayan was not wearing a helmet when the accident occurred. – Umagang Kay Ganda, July 4 2012
