MANILA -- A couple died after their owner-type jeep crashed into a wall on Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong Sunday morning.

Based on the initial investigation by Mandaluyong Traffic Police, the vehicle, with plate number DNZ-247, was traversing the westbound lane of Shaw Boulevard when its brakes malfunctioned, causing it to cross over to the opposite lane.

The jeep rammed another vehicle before crashing into the wall of Lee Tower in Barangay Addition Hills.

The victims, Rocambuli and Lilibeth Rabong, died Sunday afternoon while they were being treated in the hospital.

Their two children are still being treated in Protacio Hospital. -- with reports from Junry Hidalgo and Henry Atuelan, DZMM
