Iligan City — A couple were thrown out of their motorcycle which resulted to injuries to both even as it was fatal for the woman.
SPO1 Albert Sumugoy, of the police station at Binuangan, Misamis Oriental identified the victims as Jojie Cortez, 43 and Florabel Cortez, 41. Both were passing through Binuangan from another municipality in Misamis Oriental and were on their way to this city.
The incident happened at around 8:45 pm Monday, Sumugoy said and it was raining that night.
Authorities theorized that Jojie might have been drowsy when she was driving the vehicle coupled with the wet terrain along the way, they were thrown out of the vehicle.
They were both wearing helmets, the police said, but Florabel’s helmet wasn’t locked, hence, the fatal damage to her head, where she had a deep wound.
