Police Maj. Clifford Batadhay said yesterday that Mary Grace Pe, of Antique, was declared dead on arrival at the Kabankalan District Hospital, after she figured in a motorcycle accident, while negotiating a rotunda in Brgy. 1 poblacion, Hinoba-an.

Pe was among the 70 to 100 participants of the Negros Island 2019 Road Tour, Batadhay said.

Batadhay also confirmed that two other motorcycle riders, who were participants of the road tour, also figured in accidents in Brgy. Culipapa, Hinobaan, but managed to continue their journey.

On Saturday, a minor, who was driving a motorcycle, with a back rider identified as Rommel Arzaga, also figured in accident in Brgy. 3, La Carlota City.

The police said the victims were on their way home, to Brgy. DSB, Pontevedra, on board a Suzuki Raeder motorcycle when the accident occurred.
