MANILA -- Another public transport bus was involved in an incident along Commonwealth Avenue on early Sunday morning.

Due to the loading and unloading passengers in the middle of the road, one motorcyle rider hit the Dar J Trans bus.

The incident took place at around 2 a.m. at Commonwealth Avenue northbound before Batasan Road.

The motorcycle driver, who was identified as Jess Chaves Boyles, 33, from Tala, Caloocan City, was left unconscious. He is currently receiving treatment at the East Avenue Medical Center.

His parents only found out about the incident hours after it happened as the victim lost his cellphone and wallet, which were suspected to have been stolen by those who first arrived at the scene.

After the incident, the bus driver, known only by his surname Alboria, reportedly fled the scene.

Only the bus conductor was the left to handle the situation. -- from a report by Dexter Ganibe, DZMM
