BAGUIO (2nd UPDATE)—Kennon Road, one of the major access roads to this city, was closed to traffic on Saturday following a rockslide caused by heavy rains.

The road will be opened upon the recommendation of the Tuba local government and municipal police.

Meanwhile, the driver of a cement mixer was wounded after the vehicle fell over Kennon Road's Camp 3 at about 4:50 p.m. Saturday.

The driver allegedly lost control of the vehicle due to the slippery road.

Last Tuesday, the road was re-opened for the graduation day of the Philippine Military Academy. —Report from Micaella Ilao, ABS-CBN News
