LUCENA CITY – A woman died and four others were severely injured in a road accident in Sampaloc town in Quezon province early on Monday.

The police reported that a tricycle, driven by Ruel Maranan, was negotiating a descending section of the Barangay Banot provincial road at around 12:45 a.m. when the vehicle suddenly lost its brake.
