Boy killed by truck in Brgy. 14
AN 11-year-old deaf-mute boy died after he was ran over by a 10-wheeler truck at Reclamation Area, Purok Boulevard, Barangay 14, Bacolod City Wednesday afternoon.
Police identified the fatality as Christian Savillo, of Barangay 14.
Police Major Jovil Sedel, chief of Police Station 1, said the victim was fixing his kite behind the 10wheeler truck driven by Reagan Requiron, 37, of Sagay City, at about 1:45 p.m.
He said the driver, who was moving backward going north direction, did not notice that he already hit the victim who died on the spot.
The truck was loaded with sacks of sugar. Sedel said Requiron was only informed by some children playing in the area that he hit the victim.
The driver immediately voluntarily surrendered to Police Station 1 and was released yesterday morning after the lapse of his reglementary period.
Sedel said that there was already a settlement between Requiron and the family of the victim.
