Truck drivers injured in Toledo mishaps

TWO truck drivers survived in two separate road accidents that occurred in Barangay Poog, Toledo City last Saturday and yesterday.

PO2 Nicanor Goc-ong of the Toledo City police’s traffic division said the first incident involved truck driver Hosias Sevantes Jr., whose trailer truck lost its brakes while he made his way downhill at 2 a.m. last Saturday.

The trailer truck was loaded with rounded steel pipes that were scheduled to be delivered to Negros Occidental.

Sevantes and a 30-year-old helper who rode with him named Ronnie Burandoy were residents of Silay town in Negros Occidental. They sustained head and body injuries when their truck rammed into a car wash shop owned by a certain Risalio Regis.

They remain confined at the Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center as of this time. Hours after the incident, another truck accident occurred at the same area.

Goc-ong said the 45-year-old truck driver identified as Ranilo Formentera drove a fuel truck that also slipped downhill and then slammed into the side of a trailer truck.

Formentera was headed to Toledo City and drove fast before he lost control of the truck down the slippery curved road.

Formentera sustained head injuries and was brought by residents to Carmen Copper hospital located near the area.
