MANILA -- A man died after he was pinned under a bus during a 6-vehicle accident in Winston St., Commonwealth Avenue, Monday afternoon.

Declared dead on arrival at the Fairview General Hospital was Carlos Pamintuan Jr., an employee of the City Engineer's Office in Quezon City.

According to Arnold Lemena of the Quezon City Risk Reduction Management Office, Pamintuan -- who was found under a Manrose bus bound for Fairview -- no longer had a pulse when he was taken to the hospital.

Initial investigation showed that the bus driver lost control of the wheel and hit five other vehicles, including Pamintuan's motorcycle.

Other victims, meanwhile, sustained minor injuries, Lemena said. -- Reports from Robert Mano, DZMM
