Kennedy Ramos, the driver, said his vehicle tipped over when he swerved to avoid crashing into a car in front of him that suddenly stopped. Some of his passengers were pinned down. Other passengers were riding on the roof of the jeep and were thrown off.

Ramos has been placed under police custody while a complaint for serious physical injury and multiple physical injuries due to reckless imprudence is being readied against him. /je
