Five people were killed while at least nine others were injured after a passenger jeep rammed a tree Saturday evening along Sitio Biga, Brgy. Bayugo in Jalajala, Rizal. Among those killed were Francisco Abisamis, the driver of the jeepney, and his wife Grace. Declared dead on arrival at a hospital were Winnie Rodriguez and her sons Karyll and Kiell Aaron. The jeep was en route to Bagumbong in Tanay. The impact was so strong the jeepney was almost folded in half. An investigation revealed the jeepney driver tried to overtake a car when he lost control of the vehicle. “Iniwasan niya itong lubak. Nasobrahan niya sa kabig, di na niya naibalik. Pataas pa mandin dito kaya nagdagdag ng speed (He oversteered around a pothole and added speed because of the road elevation),” said S/Insp. Amadeo Estrella of the Jalajala PNP.
