A car escaped the flow of soil and rocks while some motorists scampered for safety.

Manipis road is an important access to and from Metro Cebu on the east coast to the west coast of Cebu Island, where Toledo City is located.

Toledo has ports that connect to neighboring Negros Island.

The landslide stranded several motorists and bikers on the other side of the road.

The Manipis road was closed last month after a similar landslide occurrence. It was opened about a week ago.

As of 10 a.m. Thursday, the Department of Public Works and Highways was clearing the area of debris. There is no time yet when the Manipis road will be opened again.
