A Benguet vegetable delivery truck driver died while his brother was hurt when the vehicle rolled down a ravine in barangay Bobongan, Topdac, Atok town in Benguet early morning Tuesday.
Benguet police director Col. Reynaldo Pasiwen said Jonas Tacyao Mayos, 28 , who drove the Toyota Darna truck with plate number TDD 492 bound to the Vegetable Trading Post in La Trinidad, Benguet did not reach the hospital alive while his brother Brent, 24, suffered injuries but was sent home after getting medical attention.
Investigators found out that the vehicle was ascending but incurred a mechanical problem prompting the driver to lose control and rolled to a ravine.
The brothers were brought to Atok District Hospital but the older Mayos died before reaching it.
The older Mayos was brought to their residence at Patapat, Topdac, Atok for his wake.
