Man injured after armored van smashes through bank in Pangasinan

/ 11:23 AM April 17, 2013

MANILA, Philippines—A man was injured Tuesday when an armored van accidentally smashed through a bank in Pangasinan after a security officer without a driver’s license was ordered to park the vehicle “properly,” police said Wednesday.

Senior Inspector Ryan Manongdo, Pangasinan police spokesman, said the incident occurred at the China Bank located along Marcos Avenue, Barangay (village) Palamis in Alaminos City around 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Before the accident, Manongdo said the armored van was already parked in front of the said bank when its driver, Randy Calina Miranda, allegedly instructed his co-security escort, Joeffrey Garcia, to “properly park the vehicle.”


However, Garcia made a reverse acceleration, causing the van to hit the front glass panel of the bank and subsequently drag customer Jovelan Radovan.

Investigators later found out that Garcia, a security officer from Guard Uniwide Security Agency, didn’t have a driver’s license.

Radovan was rushed to the Western Pangasinan District Hospital and later transferred to a hospital in Dagupan City after sustaining injuries in different parts of his body, Manongdo said.
