A TRAILER truck that went wayward the other night along Road 10 in Tondo, Manila, claimed the life of a 34-year-old woman, who was aboard a motorcycle, and injured its driver.
Victim Femia Valderama died on the spot while the driver, who was thrown meters away, was Jimmy Abet Quiminales, 29, of Morala St., San Rafael, Navotas.
SPO2 John Cayetano of the Manila Traffic Enforcement Unit said that at around 12:20 p.m., the victim was aboard a motorcycle being driven by Quiminales and which was cruising along Road 10 near the Harbour Center in Tondo when the said truck, which was then allegedly speeding, hit them from behind.
As the victims fell to the ground, Valderama was run over by the truck whose driver chose to drive on instead of stopping. Quiminales failed to get the plate number of the said truck.
