Ten of the 13 passengers of a multicab died after a head on collision with a delivery truck on National Road, Barangay Carael, Botolan, Zambales at around 3:00 pm, Thursday.
Seven of the victims onboard the multicab were declared dead on the spot, while three were declared dead on arrival at the hospital.
Among the five injured are the driver and the porter of the delivery truck.
Based on the initial investigation conducted by the PNP-Zambales, the front tire of the delivery truck burst, causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle and eventually crashing into the multicab.
Some of the multicab passengers were on their way home from a seminar at Ramon Magsaysay Technical University in the town of Botolan. — UNTV News & Rescue
