Two men were hurt in a road accident in Aimeliik on Saturday, August 10.
Bureau of Public Safety Director Aloysius Alonz said that the Filipino national was driving a crane truck with a Bangladeshi as passenger while heading to Ngatpang for a project.
The truck driver was identified as Armando Agravante, 44, a Filipino national while the passenger was identified as Mohammad Motin, 32, a Bangladeshi national.
Alonz said that based on their preliminary investigation, the driver lost control of the PIDC-owned vehicle while maneuvering down a curve road in Aimeliik.
The two men were brought to the hospital by the responding officers after they sustained injuries from the incident.
The driver sustained a minor injury while the passenger also suffered compression but Alonz said that the injuries were not life-threatening.
A video of the aftermath of the incident that is being circulated in social media showed the Filipino national lying on his back on a dirt beside the road and had a difficulty standing. Another man was shown assisting the Filipino to stand while bystanders also tried to calm down the injured persons. (Rhealyn C. Pojas)
