SAN CARLOS CITY, Pangasinan -- A village chief here was killed after he was run over by a dump truck in a freak accident in Barangay Perez Boulevard here on Tuesday, Nov. 14, a report by the Police Regional Office 1 said on Wednesday.
    The police said 55-year-old Alejandro Calugay, village chief of Barangay Cobol, was driving his motorcycle with 29-year-old Melanie Rosendal as his back ride when he tried to overtake a dump truck in the outermost lane of the road.
    He lost control of his motorcycle, which slipped on the road ahead of the truck. He was thrown off his motorcycle, and the truck ran over him.
    Calugay suffered injuries in the different parts of his body and did not make it to the hospital alive.
    He was declared dead on arrival by the attending physician.
    His passenger also suffered injuries and was taken to the hospital for treatment.
Calugay was recently reelected as barangay chief.
    In Bolinao town, a 33-year-old construction worker was killed, also on Tuesday, after he was electrocuted while fixing a cable in his house in Barangay Luciente 1.
    Police said Jerry Romero Casipagan was found dead by his father, Pancho, at around 12:45 p.m.
    His family brought Casipagan to a hospital in the town, but a doctor there declared him dead on arrival.
