LAPU-LAPU CITY, Cebu- A 20-year-old man died after his motorcycle collided with a dump truck along the national highway in Brgy. Poblacion in Liloan town at around 7 a.m. on Wednesday, June 19.

The motorcycle rider was identified as Fel Rydge Pepito, a resident of Purok Kaimito also in Brgy. Poblacion.
