Seven persons including two barangay kagawads were killed and 5 others were injured after a trailer truck carrying a bulldozer plowed into a group of people attending a vigil Tuesday night, December 1, 2020 at Aplaya, Jasaan, Misamis Oriental. The incident also resulted to damage to several motorycles and vehicles parked along the national highway where the vigil was being held.
Radio reports indicate that the truck driver lost control of his vehicle after the truck’s chassis broke and swerved into the victims who were at the roadside attending the last vigil of a departed resident in the area. He is now detained at the Jasaan Municipal Police Station facing charges of reckless imprudence resulting to multiple homicide and damage to property.
