MANILA, Philippines -- Nineteen people were injured after two passenger buses collided along the westbound lane of Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City on Friday morning.

Initial investigation showed that the Prado bus plying the Quiapo-Fairview route slammed into the Jayross bus along the UP-Ayala Technohub.

Prado bus conductor Carlo Rodriguez said, however, that their bus crashed after the Jayross bus swerved to their lane.

The injured victims, who were all passengers of the Prado bus, were rushed to the East Avenue Medical Center for treatment. -- Report from Johnson Manabat, dzMM
