MANILA - At least four people were slightly injured in a collision involving six vehicles along the northbound lane of EDSA corner Fema Road in Quezon City.

Initial investigation showed that a speeding Mitsubishi Montero first sideswiped a tourist bus before hitting an Isuzu  Crosswind, Mazda SUV, R&E taxi and a Toyota Revo.

The vehicle, driven by Johans Uy, then crashed into a bunkhouse beside the Dario bridge. The bunkhouse was being used by workers repairing the bridge.

Uy admitted that he was sleepy at the time of the accident. He said he just came from work when the accident occurred.

Uy sustained hand injuries. He was brought to the Quezon City Traffic Sector 6.

The driver of the taxi as well as two construction workers were also hurt in the accident. -- Report from Dexter Ganibe, dzMM
