LUCENA CITY — Three motorists, who were heading to Quezon to visit their dead relatives, died and six others were injured early Wednesday, Nov. 1, after a sports utility vehicle (SUV) hit two tricycles in Calamba City. Laguna.

In a report, the Region 4A police said Gilbert Palupit, 35, was driving his tricycle around 3:30 a.m., with five family members as passengers – his wife Aileen, 34, and children Ma. Aleisha Gale, 4; Akisha Gillen, 11; Allysa Joy, 12; and Ayesha Gillian, 9, – along the national highway in Barangay Bucal.


Suddenly, a Ford Ranger Raptor driven by Alyssa Mae Abitria, 27, occupied the opposite lane and collided with Palupit’s tricycle.


Another tricycle – driven by John Rey San Juan with Myla Alloro, 38, as a passenger – following Palupit was also subsequently bumped by the SUV.

The tricycle drivers and passengers were thrown to the pavement and suffered serious injuries. A passenger of the SUV, Clay John Tianzon, 25, was also injured.

Gilbert died on the spot. His family members were taken to JP Rizal Hospital in the city, but his wife Aileen was declared dead on arrival, while Ma. Aleisha Gale also expired during treatment.

The Calamba police station said the Palupits came from Barangay Real in Calamba and were going to Sariaya town in Quezon province, Aileen’s hometown, to observe All Saints Day.

The police said the SUV changed lanes and occupied the lane of the tricycles, which led to the collision.

The SUV driver was placed under police custody and is facing criminal charges.
