1 dead, 4 hurt in Quezon road crash
LUCENA CITY –– A Bicol-bound motorist died and four others were injured after the van they were riding on crashed into a parked truck along the Quirino Highway in Tagkawayan town in Quezon province early Friday.
A spot report from Tagkawayan police station said a Mitsubishi FB L300 van was negotiating the Quirino Highway on the way to Bicol, when its driver, Mark Anthony Palad, lost control of the steering wheel.
The wayward van consequently bumped the rear portion of an Isuzu ten-wheeler aluminum wing van truck parked at the roadside in Barangay Bagong Silang around 5:30 a.m.
Palad and his four other passengers––Christian Aslor, Leoncio Rañada Jr., Isidro Maravilla Jr., and Annabelle Aslor––were injured.
They were taken to Maria L. Eleazar Memorial District Hospital at the town center but Christian died on the way. (Editor: Leti Boniol)
