By Jorge Hallare

LEGAZPI CITY, June 2 (PNA) -- A 70-year-old man died when a tricycle hit the cart being pulled by a carabao which he was riding at Zone 5, Barangay Sta. Elena, Iriga City at about 3:45 a.m. Wednesday.

Residents rushed Francisco P. Canuto, a resident of the place, to Our Lady Hospital in the city but the latter was declared dead on arrival due to serious injuries he suffered.

A police report identified the suspect, who voluntarily surrendered, as Jonson A. Delda, 24, single and resident of Zone 1, Barangay Tinawagan, Tigaon, Camarines Sur.

The report said Delda was driving fast and due to darkness at that time, he did not notice the cart being pulled by the carabao and hit it. (PNA) LAP/FGS/JH/CBD
