MANILA – A man was seriously injured after a 40-foot trailer truck rammed a concrete post and then turned on its side along San Mateo-IBP Road in Quezon City on Wednesday morning.

Authorities said the truck was speeding along the wet road before it rammed the concrete post.

One of the truck's passengers was rushed to the hospital after sustaining a serious head injury.

The concrete post was nearly toppled, resulting in a power outage in the area. The incident also caused heavy traffic, as the truck and live wires blocked almost the entire road. – report from Kori Quintos, ABS-CBN News
