Police said the victim was having bowel problems last Wednesday thus the reason the latter rushed to the other side grassy area of the road to relieve himself.
“Pero sa dihang nahuman na siya midali na pud siyag balik og tabok apan usa ka bus sa RTMI nga kusog kaayo hag-as lang mitunga ug mibangg kaniya,” Lumantas said.
