2 killed as dump truck crashes into rice field in Abra

By Jamie Elona, INQUIRER.net

MANILA, Philippines—Two people were killed and 12 others were injured when a dump truck crashed into a rice field in Abra last Monday afternoon, police said Tuesday.

Police Inspector Franco Toreja, Malibcong Municipal Police Station chief, said the accident occurred in Barangay (village) Duldulao in Malibcong, Abra around 4:45 p.m. involving an Isuzu dump truck (WTD 957) which was transporting 37 passengers.

Toreja said Robert Sagban was driving his truck along an elevated road back to Barangay Duldulao with passengers when he allegedly lost control of the steering wheel, causing his vehicle to fall 20 feet down to a rice field.

“Makitid kasi ang daan dito kaya mahirap talaga magmaneho (The road here is narrow making it driving difficult),” Toreja said.

The passengers were all residents of Malibcong who were being driven home after attending an oath-taking ceremony of local government officials.

One of the passengers, Ruben Gunawa, 47, died on the spot, while Danilo Gamming was declared dead on arrival at the Abra Provincial Hospital.

Twelve others were injured, but four of them have already been discharged from the hospital as of posting.
“Sagban escaped after the incident,” Toreja said.

Sagban is facing charges of reckless imprudence resulting in homicide, and multiple physical injuries.

  3. Maiwasan koma met daguita nga disgrasya no adda disciplina tayo iti bukod tay a bagi, ammo tayo met a narigat ti dalan. No ti driver ket nabartek haan koman nga agdrive, apay a pinalubosan da a nangitulod dayta nabartek aya ngamin. Agkorang diay kaso nga impilada kanyana, nabartek a nagdrive ti lugan” ket uray pay daguiti gulong ti lugan a nagpasalug ket haan na a masurot diay husto a tire-path.

  4. Uray kasano t laing no nakainum, diferencia ti judgment nan. Isu nga adda linteg nga maiparit nga agdrive ni nabartek, ta kaadu an t road accidents ket gapu ti nakainum nga driver.
    Sapay koma ta matungpal ni gov Takit ti arapaapna nga mangpasimpa dagita nga kalsada daytoy uneg ti 3 tawen. Uray dagiti nailet nga parte ken narisgo nga lugar ti maipalawa ken masemento. Buyiogan tayo ti napasnek nga kararag daytoy nga pangguep ni gov appo nga umili. We have to trust God not the governor’s ability.
