MANILA – A taxi driver was injured after his vehicle was rear-ended by a 10-wheeler truck along Magsaysay Boulevard in Sta. Mesa, Manila before midnight Monday.
Taxi driver Valeriano dela Torre said his vehicle was on full stop when it was rammed by the truck, driven by Zaldy Bautista. The impact sent the taxi crashing into another truck in front of it .
Dela Torre complained of leg pain after the collision.
Bautista, meanwhile, said he lost control of the truck after his brakes failed.
Traffic police, however, suspect the truck driver may have fallen asleep while driving. – report from Jerome Lantin, ABS-CBN News
