MANILA, Philippines – A passenger van, jeepney and a broadcast network’s service vehicle were involved in a three-vehicle crash along Rizal Avenue corner Tayuman Street in Sta. Cruz, Manila Wednesday morning.

According to jeepney driver Ferdinand Marcelo, he was about to cross Tayuman Street when a UV Express van with plate number PXX 555 crashed into the rear of this vehicle.

The van, Marcelo said, was on the northbound lane of Rizal Avenue.

The force of the impact pushed them into the other lane, causing a white Nissan Sentra marked as belonging to GMA-7, being driven by Dennis Dolosa, to also collide with the jeep and van.

Police arrested Reynold Gabasa, the driver of the passenger van, who was suspected to be drunk.

No injuries were reported. – From a report by Zhander Cayabyab, DZMM
