Pavia hit-and-run might be intentional

By Jennifer P. Rendon

The hit-and-run incident in Pavia, Iloilo, that killed a call center agent and injured his wife might not be just a case of reckless imprudence but an intentional act leading to homicide and serious physical injury.

Major Dadje Delima, Pavia police chief, said they are investigating the possibility that the driver of the vehicle—a silver BMW Z3—intentionally hit the couple.

“That’s where our investigation veered,” Delima said after speaking with She, the survivor of the incident.

According to reports, Rave, 40, and his common-law wife She, 19, were returning from Barangay Oñate-de Leon, Mandurriao, Iloilo City, to their rented house at Deca Homes in Barangay Balabag, Pavia.

Around 9 p.m. on June 1, while navigating Barangay Pandac, Pavia, the sports car struck She’s leg. Rave was driving while his wife was riding behind.

“So, apparently there was an altercation and the victims saw the driver’s face,” Delima said.

The car driver allegedly had two companions when the incident happened. Rave reportedly confronted the driver, advising him to be careful and go slow.

This confrontation allegedly angered the driver, who then made a U-turn and intentionally bumped them. As if that wasn’t enough, the driver reversed and hit them again.

Reports said She wasn’t fatally wounded as her husband pushed her to safety. However, the couple sustained leg fractures, and Rave died from head injuries. The couple has two-year-old twins.

Delima mentioned that they already have persons of interest.

The driver of the car is reportedly a businessman with homes in Deca Village and Savannah Iloilo Communities. One of his companions is a resident of Calinog town in Iloilo.
