An elderly man riding a motorcycle on his way home was killed after a mini tanker truck hit him on Saturday in Bacolod City.

The fatality was identified as Andres Jakosalem, 57, according to a report by ABS-CBN News.

Jakosalem was on his way home to bring food for his grandchildren when the mini tanker truck rammed him while traversing a curved road near his house at Barangay Estefania.

The report added that Jakosalem was seen overtaking a pick-up vehicle before the incident happened.
