Baguio City, Philippines – A 33-year-old Grab motorcycle rider died, while one senior citizen was injured as a vehicle violently plowed through vehicles along Romulo Drive, Baguio City on Sunday afternoon, July 31, 2022.

The casualty was identified as a certain Jake Salazar Sillorequez, married, and a resident of Gabriela Silang, Hill Side, Baguio City, while the injured was David Annayo Lumatac, 64, married, and a resident of Purok 8, Kias, Baguio City.
