Another person was injured in the accident. He was identified as Sikan Gali, also a resident of Sitio Bulisong, Barangay Burirao, Narra, Palawan, and was also a backrider of Luntad.
The multicab, on the other hand, was driven by Bernard Regenio, 33 years old, married, carpenter without driver’s license and a resident of Barangay Poblacion, Aborlan, Palawan.
