I was shocked upon receiving news of a road accident between a 10-wheeler trucking fully loaded with cut sugarcanes and a car in a diversion road which is less traffic yesterday afternoon of November 30 somewhere in Bago City, Phillipines. The car was totally wrecked when the truck accidentally fell upon it while stopping upon seeing the coming truck running in zigzag. And all the car passengers were all dead on the spot after they're severely wounded by a sharp sugarcane cuts. The 10-wheeler driver was unscathed and safe. One of the car passengers is my grade 6'female pupil before while I was still a classroom teacher in elementary school within the city sometime in 1999. She's pregnant. The other passengers are the driver, 59; this wife, 53; and a grandson, 3 years old. The truck driver is in prison while the investigation is to be completed and a criminal case is readied to be filed against the driver.

Those truck drivers drive like crazy, most of the accidents we have here are caused by truck drivers. This is a tragic accident.

There should be a law against the truck with overloading sugarcane cuts. Accident is likely to happen if that is allowed in the road.

These sugar cane trucks or most cargo trucks in our country most of the time overload to make more money per trip which are often the cause of vehicular accidents involving trucks. R.I.P. To the passengers and the condolence to the family of your former student.

Thanks. You're right in your assessment. The more tonnage of sugarcane the driver hauls, the more income he may get.

It's an accident. It's has to be confirmed yet. The driver of cane truck loaded with tons of sugarcane cuts is not allowed to drive if he's drunk. The accident happened around 2 pm.
