A GASOLINE station worker died on the spot following a vehicular incident in Barangay Sasa, Buhangin District at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, May 22.

Ryan Daniel A. Alpaz, 34, employee of Phoenix Petroleum and a resident of Plain View Village at Km. 10, Sasa, was driving his Suzuki motorcycle on the outer lane when Lord Jay M. Sunga, 44, resident of Gen. Luna Extension, Poblacion Digos, Davao del Sur, suddenly merged with traffic.

The Fuso Canter truck driven by Sunga hit the motorcycle, causing Alpaz to lose control of the bike.
