CEBU CITY, Philippines — A former PBA player died after he was ran over by a trailer truck when he was thrown off his motorcycle after he lost control of it and crashed it on the road this morning, April 29, 2023, at the South Road Properties (SRP) in Cebu City.
Police Senior Master Sergeant Diosdado Parejas, investigator-on-case of the Sawang Calero Police Station, identified the victim as Rodulfo Enterina Jr., 58, a resident of Barangay Cansojong, Talisay City.
Initial investigation showed that Enterina was thrown off his motorcycle, when it crashed on the road, at past 9 a.m. near the entrance of the third Mactan Cebu bridge.
The trailer truck, which was traveling behind Enterina, unfortunately, failed to stop when this happened, and the truck ran over the rider (Enterina) and the motorcycle, causing the rider’s death.
“Pagkaabot niya (Enterina) dapit sa CCLEX entrance, he encountered uneven pavement of road. And then na lost control siya…nalagpot siya. Na outbalanced siya, and napasok man ang driver ilawom sa prime mover mao tong naligsan siya,” Police Senior Master Sergeant Parejas told CDN Digital.
