Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, March 30) - The suspect in a hit and run incident that happened along Marcos Highway has surrendered.

Pasig City Police Chief Col. Rizalito Gapas told CNN Philippines Saturday they have Adrian King Carlos in custody.

Carlos said he is taking full responsibility for his "irresponsible" driving.

The video of the incident went viral on social media earlier this week.

It showed Joseph Belen and his partner Rosalina Ugto traveling along the highway on their motorcycle, when they were hit by a speeding car.

Belen suffered from leg injuries because of the incident, while Ugto suffered from a head injury and fell into a coma.

Gapas confirmed Ugto passed away last night.
