“We do have a report of a minor traffic accident involving the Mayor of Benque Viejo Town, Mr. Rancharan. This happened on Monday. What happened was that he was driving and he indicated to Police that he suddenly heard a sound to the back of his vehicle. Upon checking, he realized that it was a female driving a motorcycle and a passenger. They were on the ground so he stopped and rendered assistance. That is basically what it is and we are investigating the matter at this point in time.”
