The truck was believed to have lost its brakes and careened on a downhill portion of the area, rammed into four cars parked on the right side of the road and hit a bystander, whose name was still unavailable, before finally stopping when it smashed into a house. Police are holding the driver of the truck. Maricar Cinco, Inquirer Southern Luzon
