He was immediately taken to the nearest hospital but then later transferred to another where he underwent an operation which requires insertion of metals on his broken leg. According to some sources, he was in Palawan to some shows and he was also planning to visit the popular tourist destinations on the island. Unfortunately, the incident happened and now he is still in the hospital to recover.
The motorcycle driver was later identified as Rey Vincent Pacaldo, Riggs was really determined to file a case against him but when he already met the man his heart just melt and decided to withdraw the charges as Pacaldo visited him in the hospital and sincerely asked for forgiveness.
Riggs also learned that he is a construction worker supporting his family and the rider was very regretful by what he did to him.
