MANILA – One week has passed but the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) still has not determined the cause of the accident involving a Leomarick Trans Bus that fell into a ravine in Carranglan, Nueva Ecija last week.

LTFRB Chairman Martin Delgra III said the investigation that the agency is conducting is yet to be completed.

Based on statements made by the bus passenger, some say the engine shut down and lost its brakes. While others say the right front wheel burst.

“Na yung bus daw namatayan ng makina, 4 curves before it fell. Napansin na rin nila na nagsisigawan na at tsaka nakita nila talagang the vehicle was already out of control,” Chair. Delgra III said. (Some said the bus engine shut down four curves before it fell. They also noticed that some passengers were already screaming and saw the vehicle was already out of control.)

LTFRB added that based on the investigation, the Leomarick Trans Bus was out of line, which means, the bus should not have traversed the road.

“So this is out of line. As it appears now, based on our franchise verification,” Chair. Delgra III added.

The Philippine National Police Nueva Vizcaya said that until now there are still bodies left unidentified at the funeral parlor.

“Three cadavers remain unidentified. Two females and one male,” PS/Insp. Robert De Guzman said. — Joshua Antonio | UNTV News & Rescue
