Sumilang's family is in much grief since he was the family's breadwinner, the TV report said.
A report in the Saipan Tribune said Sumilang was thrown out of the back of a white 1990 Toyota Hilux pickup truck after it was hit by a 2005 Toyota Matrix five-door wagon near a park.
The wagon also hit a blue Honda Civic, the report said.
Sumilang's head hit the pavement after he was thrown off the truck due to the collision's impact. He was admitted to the Commonwealth Health Center and attached to a life support device before passing away on Jan. 10.
Siblings Abad and Arnel Santos, the truck's Filipino driver and front passenger, were also rushed to the hospital after sustaining various injuries but were later released.
The driver of the five-door wagon responsible for the crash, Wang Yi, appeared before court at a bail hearing on Jan. 11 on charges of unsafe turning, unsafe change of lanes and homicide by vehicle.
A preliminary hearing was set for January 15 while the arraignment was scheduled for January 28, the Saipan Tribune report said. —KG, GMA News
