Groom-To-Be, DOA After Getting Hit by Truck While Delivering Wedding Invitations

A groom-to-be was declared DOA after getting hit by a truck while delivering wedding invitations to family and friends in Fausta, Calinan in Davao City. The incident happened at around 1PM last March 31, 2021.

Losing a loved one is truly a difficult thing to cope with, but it becomes even harder to accept the situation when the person had just celebrated or is about to do something momentous. That’s the reason why so many people were truly sad over the loss of groom-to-be Jonex Balano in an accident just days before his wedding day.

Sadly, the wedding will never happen because he got hit by a truck. In photos shared on Facebook, the truck driver appears to be distressed over what happened. It is unclear how the incident happened but netizens aren’t taking any sides, seeing that the old driver looks really sad, too.

Some netizens commented that the groom should have asked someone else to deliver the wedding invitations because of the superstitious belief that those who are about to get married are prone to accidents.

But others pointed out that so many people are getting married each year. Many even travel to faraway places for a destination wedding, yet nothing untoward happened to them.

It really is just so unfortunate that Jonex met an accident within days of his wedding.
