MANILA, Philippines — A security guard sustained multiple injuries after a sport utility vehicle (SUV) he was trying to stop at an intersection in Mandaluyong City rammed him on Sunday.

Christian Joseph Floralde, in a viral dashcam footage posted on Facebook, was shown enforcing the traffic flow near a mall at the intersection of Julio Vargas Avenue and St. Francis Street in Mandaluyong when he tried to stop a white SUV.

The 31-year-old victim, who sustained an abrasion on the head and had difficulty in breathing, is currently in the intensive care unit of the VRP Medical Center.

FEATURED STORIES

The Mandaluyong City Police Station and the Land Transportation Office (LTO) have identified the driver, who was not named due to data privacy.

In a show-cause order, Renante Melitante, officer in charge of the LTO’s intelligence and investigation division, summoned the identified owner of the vehicle on Tuesday for “intentionally” hitting the traffic enforcer, which resulted in physical injuries.

The driver was also directed to submit a written comment or explanation on why he should not be charged for reckless driving and duty of driver in case of accident under Republic Act No. 4136.

Because of the gravity of the incident, the LTO said the drivers’ license was also preventively suspended for 90 days and his motor vehicle record will be placed “under alarm” to prevent any transaction while the investigation is in progress.
