Police Captain Arturo Marfil, chief of Catmon Police Station, told CDN Digital in a phone interview that the accident involved a motorcycle and a wing van that were traversing in opposite directions.

He said that Teneboroso was traveling with a friend who was driving his own motorcycle ahead of him. The two were reportedly heading for Cebu City from lighting candles in observance of Kalag-Kalag in Medellin, Cebu when the accident happened.

Marfil citing their initial investigation disclosed that when the rider reached the barangay, he allegedly encroached on the opposite lane which caused him to collide head-on with a wing van that was traveling in the opposite direction.
