The road leading to the C5 Katipunan southbound flyover has become a virtual parking lot after an accident involving a trailer truck and a motorcycle occurred Monday afternoon.

The truck occupied three lanes.


The Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) reported the accident at 2:51 p.m. on its official Twitter account.


The Guidon, Ateneo de Manila University’s student publication, cited an eyewitness account saying that the truck swerved left, hit a motorcycle, collided into a lamppost, and then veered toward the southbound lane.
