A truck passenger was injured after the vehicle rammed into two large posts along EDSA-Quezon Avenue before dawn Thursday.

Crisanto Ocampo, driver of the 14-wheeler truck, was allegedly speeding before he hit two MMDA signange posts near the Quezon Avenue flyover.

Ocampo claimed he accidentally steered his truck towards the posts when a bus almost hit the side of his vehicle.

Ocampo’s companion, Aries Santos, was stuck in the wreckage for about an hour. He was immediately rushed to the East Avenue Medical Center for treatment.

The hollow blocks that the truck was carrying scattered on the road, causing traffic build-up in the area.

The truck driver is now facing reckless imprudence resulting to physical injury and damage to property. – Umagang Kay Ganda, May 17 2012
