DAGUPAN CITY, Pangasinan, Philippines—Three persons died while two others were hurt after two trucks collided early Thursday morning on a busy highway connecting this city and neighboring Binmaley town in Pangasinan province, police said.

One of the trucks crashed into a house after the collision, killing a mother who was preparing her family’s breakfast at about 6 a.m. in Barangay (village) Gayaman in Binmaley.

Two others, a man and a woman, died after their motorcycle was hit and pinned under one the trucks.


Police have yet to identify the victims.


Witnesses said one of the trucks, an Isuzu elf, overtook another vehicle and hit an oncoming 10-wheel truck.

The driver of the 10-wheel truck lost control of the wheel, causing the truck to swerve and ram a two-story house.

Police said the truck drivers were hurt and were taken to a hospital here for treatment.

Traffic stalled in the highway on Thursday morning, stranding commuters, mostly students and workers, heading to this city and Lingayen town.
