MANILA -- A motorcycle rider was killed in a hit-and-run accident in Barangay Ugong, Pasig City on Wednesday night.

The victim, 45-year-old Gino Martin Hercules Contreras II, was riding his motorcycle with plate number 6158 PU, when the accident happened along the southbound lane of the C5 flyover at around 11 p.m.

Police Officer 3 Edwin Cruz of Pasig's Traffic Management Office said Contreras fell off his motorcycle and hit the center island after jostling with another motorcycle.

Cruz said Contreras was still lying on the road when a speeding truck ran over him, breaking his body into pieces.

Authorities had a hard time identifying the victim.

Authorities are hoping a CCTV camera caught the accident so they can identify the plate number of the motorcycle and truck involved.-- Report from Zandro Ochona, dzMM
