MANILA – Motorists experienced heavy traffic along Commonwealth Avenue on Sunday after hundreds of bottles of soft drinks fell from a delivery van, flooding the highway with soda near the Elliptical Road in Quezon City.

According to driver Albert Cabison, the left lock of the van was unable to hold the weight of the soft drink cases causing it to fall.

Cabison said they were carrying around 600 cases of soft drinks and more than half of it fell in the street.

An enforcer of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) reported that the traffic reached the corner of Commonwealth and Central Avenues.

As of writing, authorities have already removed the cases and small pieces of broken soft drink bottles on the street.

The MMDA also said traffic situation is also beginning to ease up in the area.
