BAGUIO CITY––Two students died, and another was injured after the jeepney carrying them fell into a 10-meter ravine in La Trinidad town, Benguet province, said authorities on Wednesday, June 8.

Police identified the fatalities as Rolly Quintino, 24, and Cedric Wasit, 25. Their injured companion was Alzimer Anton Menes.


An initial investigation showed that the victims, residents of Barangay Palew in Tublay town, Benguet, came from La Trinidad and were heading home when they figured in the accident.

Police said Wasit, who was driving, lost control of the vehicle and hit a riprap wall when they reached the vicinity of Lower Tomay, causing it to plunge into the ravine.


The victims were taken to Benguet General Hospital. Quintino and Wasit were declared dead on arrival, while Menes was recuperating. INQ
