A motorcyclist was killed after he collided with a truck Thursday afternoon along Kabankalan-Mabinay Road in Barangay 9, Kabankalan City.
Police identified the fatality as 42-yearold Nestor Catiban, a resident of Barangay Oringao in the said city. Kabankalan City Police Station traffic investigators said Catiban was traveling south on his motorcycle when he attempted to overtake a truck driven by 57-year-old Esteband Aguedo.
