MANILA -- A bus driver was shot dead while his conductor was run over in a road rage incident in Carmen, Pangasinan on Saturday afternoon.

ABS-CBN News anchor Ted Failon reported that he received information that a pick-up truck and a Solid North Transit bus plying the Manila-Pangasinan route accidentally bumped into each other along the road at around 4:30 p.m.

The bus was traversing the southbound lane of the road while the pick-up truck was on the northbound lane.

The driver of the black pick-up truck with plate number NER 878 then reportedly ran over the bus conductor after the latter alighted the vehicle.

Meanwhile, the bus driver, who also immediately got off the bus following the incident, was shot dead by the pick-up truck driver.

The bus driver died on the spot while it is still not yet known where the wounded conductor was brought to. -- Report from Ted Failon, ABS-CBN News
