OLONGAPO CITY—A family was killed after a passenger bus crashed into a tricycle in Sta. Cruz, Zambales at 10 p.m. on Saturday.
Police said the southbound tricycle carrying the victims veered into the opposite lane of the national highway to avoid a wayward motorcycle, and was rammed by a northbound Victory Liner bus in Barangay (village) Lipay.
The tricycle’s driver, Tilyong Arbizo, and his wife Michelle were killed while their two children — Daniel Arbizo, 8 and Mikoy Arbizo, 4 — died as they were brought to a hospital.
Three more children on board the tricycle were injured, but investigators did not say if they were related to the fatalities.
The victims were residents of Barangay Lucapon South in Sta. Cruz, Zambales. /ee, je
