Two people were killed while nine others were injured, in a highway accident in Butuan City on Morning morning, after a wayward trailer truck hit a multicab van.
The victims were passengers of the multicab, which was struck by the Surigao-bound Aluminum Wing Van truck in Barangay Sumilihon at about 11:00 a.m.
The multicab was heading to the city proper from Magallanes, Agusan del Norte when the accident happened.
Police said the truck driver lost control of the wheel after one of the truck’s tires reportedly burst.
The truck driver and his helper, were among those hurt and taken to the Butuan City Medical Center along with other injured passengers.
Authorities have not released the identities of the casualties as of this writing. By GD Photos courtesy of Mary-Ann M. Ceniza
