A 36-year-old woman died after her head was crushed in a road accident in Tagum City Wednesday afternoon.

Police said victim Arlene Diacamos, a resident of Maco, was riding a motorcycle driven by her neighbor along Tagum City's national highway when a truck suddenly sideswiped them.

The truck then ran over the victim.

PO3 Reymundo Harding, the traffic investigator, said Diacamos was carrying a tray of eggs while traveling when the accident happened.

Truck driver Gilbert Edhao is now behind bars. He is set to face a complaint for reckless imprudence resulting in homicide.
