A personnel of the South Luzon Expressway is in critical condition, while another is injured, after being crushed inside their patrol car when it was hit by an 18-wheeler truck at the southbound lane of SLEX in Biñan, Laguna.
According to Eugene Reyes, chief of the Biñan City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office, it took some time before the two SLEX personnel were removed from inside the patrol car.
The container van being carried by the 18-wheeler truck fell sideways and occupied four lanes of the SLEX, and caused heavy traffic from 1:00PM.
The traffic reached up to four kilometers before the trailer truck and container van were removed.
Traffic remains heavy near Southwoods due to the accumulated volume of vehicles.
