MANILA – Two people were wounded after a truck rammed several houses in Taytay, Rizal on Tuesday evening.

The truck, driven by Joland Dela Cruz, was seen going wayward before slamming into a post and several houses in Barangay Dolores at around 7:30 p.m. Two tricycles were also damaged.

Dela Cruz and his passenger were wounded in the crash.

Melvin Soriano, who avoided being hit by the truck, said the driver seemed to have lost control of the vehicle while driving along the downward portion of the road.

The truck owner, meanwhile, has promised financial assistance for the owners of the damaged properties. – report from Carolyn Bonquin, ABS-CBN News
