BACOLOD City – Two persons were injured after their motorcycle collided with an ambulance at the intersection of Lizares-Lacson Streets in Barangay 40 here last Wednesday.

The victims were identified as motorcycle driver Edwin Colisio, 25, of Bago City, Negros Occidental; and his companion Sunny Cabales, 27, of Murcia town.

Police Major Leo Estopa, head of Police Station 6, said that Colisio was reportedly drunk, as observed by the traffic investigator.

Both motorcycle riders, who were wearing helmets, were on their way home when they figured in the accident, he added.

The victims suffered minor injuries, but refused to be brought to the hospital, Estopa said.

Estopa said the ambulance of Talisay City was supposed to pick up a patient, when the accident occurred.

Both parties already agreed to settle the incident.
