MANILA — A 63-year-old female street sweeper suffered severe injuries as she was hit by a sports utility vehicle (SUV) in Parañaque on Saturday, according to a report from the Parañaque City Police Station.

The woman was sweeping the street when an SUV hit, dragged, and ran over her at the corner of Elizalde Avenue nd Aguirre Avenue in Barangay BF Homes.

This incident was caught on camera, with CCTV footage showing the driver hitting and running over the street sweeper even though she was on the side of the road.

The woman was immediately brought to the Ospital ng Paranaque and was later transferred to the Philippine General Hospital.

The suspect, identified as 42-year-old Raymond Maraña, was arrested and taken to the Traffic Vehicular Investigation Unit for investigation.

Police are now preparing a complaint of reckless imprudence resulting in serious physical injury against Maraña. The complaint will be filed during inquest proceedings at the Parañaque City Prosecutor’s Office.
