MANILA - Two people were left wounded after a six-wheeler truck had a brake malfunction and fell off a 25-feet cliff in Antipolo City.

Worker Sonny Bernabe, jumped off the six-wheeler truck he was riding around midnight on Sunday, gaining bruises in the process.

They were en route to Laguna from Baliwag, Bulacan to deliver feeds, when they lost control of the brake and fell off a 25-feet cliff at Barangay Dalig, Zigzag Road, Antipolo City.

Two of the wheels and the propeller of the six-wheeler truck were left at the Zigzag road, after it hit eight concrete barriers.

The sacks of feeds they were supposed to deliver fell off the cliff as well.

The driver, who was said to have started working with them just last Thursday, cannot be found.

However, Brgy. Dalig's Executive Officer Marcelino Juares said that they saw the driver limp walking away from the incident site.

This is the fourth time a vehicle fell from the Zigzag road at Antipolo.

It is recommended that motorists who pass by this road check all parts of their vehicle before travelling. -- from a report by Kori Quintos, ABS-CBN News
