A woman died after the motorcycle she was riding figured in a freak accident in Quezon City on Thursday morning.
Victim Lucia Robelo, 32, died after the motorcycle she was riding, driven by her husband Francis, tumbled along the southbound lane of A. Bonifacio Avenue.
It was not yet established how the accident occurred, but rescuers noted that the sand on the road caused the motorcycle to slide.
Lucia also wore a helmet, but it was easily destroyed upon impact. A 5-meter-long skid mark was also seen at the site of accident.
Francis, 32, was not yet able to give a statement as he was still in a state of shock.
Authorities are also looking into the possibility that the couple was also hit by another vehicle.
They said they will review closed-circuit television camera footage from a nearby establishment to determine how the accident occurred.
