MANILA – A trailer truck crashed into a row of concrete barriers along South Luzon Expressway (SLEx) on Wednesday morning.

Heavy traffic build-up was observed along SLEx's southbound lane after a 16-wheeler truck crashed into a row of concrete barriers near Sales Bridge at around 4:30 a.m.

Truck passenger Von Relato said the driver, Alex George, lost control of the vehicle after its brakes failed. The truck driver, however, admitted that he fell asleep while driving, resulting in the crash. – report from Dennis Datu, dzMM
