Two others–Rogelio Macapanas, 55; and Antonio Indic, 63—suffered minor injuries.

The Tanauan police, in a report, said the casualties were in a waiting shed at a village in the town when a Toyoto Fortuner, driven by lawyer Racquel Kho, 70, went straight at them.

The front left tire of the Fortuner, which was headed to the town of Palo from Tolosa, exploded, prompting the SUV to serve to the opposite lane of the road, slamming into a parked pedicab before careening to the waiting shed where the victims were standing.

Kho and a companion suffered injuries, too, and were brought to a hospital.
