MANILA -- Four people were hurt after a passing truck hit a motorcycle along Mindanao Avenue, Quezon City on Sunday morning.

The victims were identified as Tito Cerrado, his wife Eloisa Ortegera, and their children Trisha, 8, and Tristan, 6.

The family came from Malinta, Valenzuela onboard a motorcycle and were on their way to Barangay Talipapa to attend a family event.

They were hit by a softdrinks delivery truck while driving along the intersection of Mindanao Avenue Extension and North Luzon Expressway (NLEx).

The truck driver, Harisson Datu-Ty, admitted that the truck's brakes malfunctioned, causing its bumper to hit the motorcycle.

He also failed to show a driver's license as it was already confiscated last March 7 for another traffic violation. -- report from Dexter Ganibe, DZMM
