Jake Cuenca finally got to pay a visit to the delivery rider who was hit by a stray bullet during a car chase he had with the police.

Cuenca, who got involved in a road accident involving authorities last month, can be seen holding the hand of delivery rider Eleazar Matinito, on his Instagram page today, Nov. 6. They appear to have met at the rider’s home.


“Masaya ako na nagkaroon ako ng pagkakataon na madalaw si Eleazar Martinito, ang Grab driver na nasaktan sa isang insidenteng hindi ko malilimutan. Taos pusong pasasalamat sa mga pulis na tumulong sa iyo at naging tulay para makilala kita,” Cuenca said.


(I’m happy that I got the chance to visit Eleazar Matinito, the Grab driver who was hurt in the incident I would never forget. I wholeheartedly thank the police who helped you and became the bridge for me to meet you.)

The actor added that he is grateful that the delivery rider is in good shape and with his family.

“Hangad ko ang iyong patuloy na kaligtasan at nawa’y makabalik agad sa iyong trabaho. Nandito lang ako para sa’yo, Ely!” he addressed Martinito. (I wish for your safety and your immediate return to work. I’m here for you, Ely.)

Cuenca allegedly hit a police patrol vehicle in Mandaluyong City last Oct. 9. He was said to have driven away from the scene, which supposedly prompted police to chase after him. They attempted to disable his vehicle by shooting at its tire. Amid the car chase, Martinito was hit by a stray bullet.

Paulo Avelino defended Cuenca last month, stating his fellow actor was not drunk driving during the incident. Authorities did not find any illegal substances or materials in the actor’s car.

Cuenca clarified in an exclusive interview with “TV Patrol” last month that he was not arrested. He claimed that he drove away from the road incident scene because the police officers were in civilian clothes and had firearms. He also said he wanted to extend help to the delivery rider who was hurt during the car chase. JB
