Police Staff Sgt. Ryan Calalas, traffic investigator of the Talisay City Police Station, identified the victim as Bridget Navarro of Barangay Zone 9, Talisay City.

Calalas said the truck loaded with softdrinks was on its way to Silay City when Navarro’s motorcycle turned left and hit the rear of the vehicle.

Navarro lost control of her motorcycle and her head slammed on the pavement, killing her on the spot, Calalas said.

Calalas said that Navarro was wearing a helmet but she probably failed to lock it, causing her to sustain severe head injuries.

He said that truck driver Junard de Nicolas, 39, of Barangay Bata here was released from police custody Sunday, June 26, after the lapse of his reglementary detention.

The family of Navarro and Nicolas are scheduled to meet Monday, June 27, to discuss the incident.
