THE tricycle driver who was involved in road accident at Araneta Street, Barangay Sum-ag, Bacolod City voluntarily surrendered to Police Station 9 and was released after the lapse of his reglementary period on Tuesday afternoon.
Police Captain Jun Ray Batadlan, chief of Police Station 9, said yesterday that Raffymin Nobleza, 24, of Purok Nami-nami, Barangay Sum-ag, voluntarily surrendered at about 4 p.m.
