A woman was injured after the motorcycle she was riding slid under a truck along Quezon Avenue in Quezon City at around 10 p.m. on Thursday.

Motorcycle driver Jaro Balonia was unscathed after his motorcycle slid under the truck driven by Eduardo Torres during a heavy downpour on Thursday night.

Balonia’s wife, on the other hand, was injured and had to be placed on a stretcher for possible bone fractures.

Balonia said Torres did not even bothered to check them after accident.

“Parang hindi na bumababa eh, parang balewala lang sa nangyari, hindi kami sinilip na nadito kami sa harapan ng sasakyan nila. Bali ang mga ibang motor yun ang pumara, hanggang sa kinuha ang susi [ng truck] para di sila makaalis,” Balonia said.

Torres, for his part, said he decided to remain in the truck  for fear of being mauled.

“Eh bakit ako bababa eh kung bugbugin ako. Alam mo naman ang sitwasyon natin dito, kahit ikaw na ang may tama ikaw pa ang gugulpihin,” said Torres, who is facing a charge of reckless imprudence resulting in physical injury. – Umagang Kay Ganda, May 4 2012
