6 days ago

Eight people died after a dump truck loaded with sand fell over their vehicles while traversing the Tagaytay-Nasugbu Road in Barangay Aga, Nasugbu in Batangas on Monday morning.

Police reports indicated that a motorcycle and an SUV were crushed under the weight of the dump truck which caused the deaths of the rider and seven other individuals who were aboard the four-wheeled vehicle.

Investigations showed the dump truck — whose driver was identified as Bren Bryan Constantino — tried to overtake a vehicle in front of him when the truck lost its breaks, causing it to ram into a fruit stand at the side of the road.

The dump truck then fell on its side and crushed the motorcycle and the SUV which were travelling on the opposite side of the road.
