The truck bearing plate number JEW 108 was headed to Talisay City from Balamban town when it rammed into a house and sari-sari store.

Truck driver Johnrey Sareta drove into a downhill road when he lost his brakes.

The 29-year-old Sareta said he jumped out of the truck but his right leg got wounded after it nearly got crushed by the vehicle’s rear tire.

The occupants of the house, four-year-old James Kyle Selgas and 20-year-old Messy Alisolo died on the spot. Selgas’s remains were recovered three hours after the accident. /with Marc Eric Cosep, Cebu Technological University Intern
