MANILA – Five people were injured after a sport utility vehicle (SUV) slammed into an area for arriving passengers and well-wishers at the Terminal 3 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) on Tuesday night.
The victims were identified as arriving foreign passengers Ahmad Heba and Scott Massey, who also lost his cellphone during the commotion, Filipino passenger Edwin Rubei, well-wishers Greggy Cunayan and Troi Troani.
They were rushed to the Philippine General Hospital for treatment.
The Ford Ranger with license plate AOL 999 was driven by a certain Dr. Agnes Barbosa.
Barbosa was reportedly waiting for a relative when she accidentally stepped on the accelerator instead of the brake.
This caused the vehicle to move forward, hitting the victims.
Responding airport police Jerome Adanza immediately arrested Barbosa and charges of reckless imprudence resulting to damage to properties and injuries are being prepared by airport authorities against her.
