Law student perished, 2 others hurt in car crash

BATAC CITY–  John Vincent Naidas, Sr., a law student,  had planned to marry his longtime girlfriend who is working abroad this coming month of April.

But the wedding plan will no longer be fulfilled after he perished in a car crash last Jan. 10 in Brgy. Tabug, this city.

C/I Jaime Quiocho, police chief, said  Naidas and two companions, aboard a Honda Jazz car, were returning home northbound from a visit in Vigan City, Ilocos Sur when they met the afternoon tragedy.

Naidas was seated at the driver’s side. All three were rushed to the hospital but Naidas was declared dead on arrival.

He said the driver lost control of the steering wheel  and hit a road side post after overtaking two other vehicles.

C/I Quiocho added that the victims apparently did not wear seat belts. (tsg)
