Five individuals were hurt after a passenger bus fell off a bridge along NLEX – San Fernando Exit (NB) in San Fernando, Pampanga on the morning of Thursday, July 11.
According to Senior Manager NLEX Traffic Operations Robin Ignacio, the passengers of Philippine Rabbit Bus sustained minor injuries following the incident that happened some 2 kilometers away from the NLEX San Fernando northbound exit.
Ignacio revealed that initial reports showed that the bus collided with the trailer truck before it rammed the railings and fell off the bridge. It is said that at least seven vehicles were involved in the accident.
The incident caused heavy traffic, that build-up about 3 kilometers long, in the area which prompted the NLEX management to implement a counter-flow scheme around 10:22 AM.
