LAOAG CITY, March 24–Due to a near road accident between a motorcycle and a kurong-kurong (improvised tricycle), two groups of riders clashed at dawn near the city public market along Bonifacio and Abadilla Streets here.

The melee was captured by closed circuit television (CCTV) camera. A footage released to the media by police showed the near collision incident. It further showed that three male riders alighted from their motorcycle.
