A CAPITOL-OWNED pickup truck hit a couple on a motorcycle, killing a 50-year-old man and injuring his wife last Sunday night in Barangay Don Pedro Rodriguez, Bogo City.

Felix Mirambel died inside the trauma center of the Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center (VSMMC) in Cebu City at 2:52 p.m. yesterday, said his nephew Edgar.

Edgar said his aunt, Marites, who was Felix’s passenger, fractured some bones. She underwent surgery yesterday and is scheduled for another operation today, he said.

Edgar told Sun.Star Cebu that Capitol chief security officer Loy Anthony Madrigal was riding the pickup truck (license plate SJC-600) when the accident occurred.

Gov. Hilario Davide III said he placed Madrigal under a 15-day preventive suspension starting yesterday as the Committee on Discipline and Investigation (Codi) will investigate him over the accident.


Edgar said Madrigal’s group allegedly pointed a gun at his aunt and uncle. “Nisiyagit akong iyaan og tabang. Nitapok na ang mga tawo mao tong nadala sila (My aunt shouted for help. Because of the crowd, my aunt and uncle were brought to the hospital),”
