LAMUT, Ifugao – A 27-year old woman died after their vehicle fell on a 10meter deep ravine within the compound of the Ifugao State University (IFSU) along Naguilian road, Nayon, Lamut, here, Monday night.
Senior Superintendent Constancio Chinayog, Jr., officer-in-charge of the Ifugao Provincial Police Office, identified the injured occupant of the vehicle as Maricel Sarate Tagueg, 27.
Initial police investigation showed that the victim and her co-workers were on board a delivery truck bound for the capital town of Lagawe when the driver tried to overtake a motorcycle along the road.
When the driver tried to bring back the vehicle to its lane, he suddenly lost control of the steering wheel causing the truck to ram into the fence of IFSU before plunging into the 10-eter ravine.
The victim was rushed to the Panupdupan District Hospital but she expired several hours later while undergoing medical treatment.
The case is still undergoing investigation by elements of the Lamut Municipal Police Station. By Dexter A. See
