Saspa claimed he lost control of the vehicle “due to the slippery road” at 3:30 a.m. Wednesday.

He then hit the center island on Ortigas Avenue corner Madison Street in Barangay Greenhills but the strong impact caused the truck to turn in the other direction and Tabuso was thrown out.

The vehicle also fell on its side, pinning the victim who died on the spot. Jodee A. Agoncillo
