A truck driver and his pahinante (helper) were injured after their truck hit a water tank and eventually fell into a ricefield along Eco-Tourism Road, Barangay Guis-Guis, Sariaya, Quezon on Wednesday afternoon.
PNP Sariaya said the truck departed from Candelaria, Quezon on its way to Lucena City when one of its front wheels exploded.
Due to its fast speed, the truck swerved on the road and hit a water tank beside the highway and crashed into a ricefield.
With MDRRMO Sariaya’s fast response team, the victims were rescued and immediately brought to a hospital.
Luckily, the oxygen gas cylinders they were carrying that scattered along the highway did not cause more trouble.
According to GMA News, just within this week, 5 vehicular accidents were already recorded in Sariaya.
